I wouldn't buy a Rummy center-fire, let alone a muzzy

Re: Remington new 200 grain muzzy

......The Ultimate Muzzleloader sets a new performance threshold with the use of a closed breech system that provides a cleaner and hotter ignition. The UML ignition system uses a uniquely-sized brass case with a Remington 9 ˝ large magnum rifle primer that is push fed into the breech plug creating a gas seal in the flash hole of the primer (see cutaway below). The result allows the shooter to load up to 200 grains of powder for increased range, energy, and on-game performance.

Using 200 grains of Triple Seven® Pellets in combination with Barnes’ Spit-Fire T-EZTM 250-grain muzzleloader bullets, the Model 700 Ultimate Muzzleloader gives the shooter the ability to reach velocities over 2400 fps. With Remington’s patented breech plug technology, shooters can now experience centerfire-like performance and accuracy out of a muzzleloader.

Saw one at the range a month ago. The guy was loading from the front and inserting a brass cartridge in the chamber. A cut down cartridge that chambers right to the flash hole.

Click on the link above for a detail of the chamber and cartridge setup.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Remington new 200 grain muzzy

200 gr.'s of 777 is a LOT of powder. I may be a wimp, but I only shoot 100 gr in my Encore with great performance. For me, it's an expensive solution to a problem that doesn't exist for Pa. hunting.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

That has to kick like a mule...

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Re: Remington new 200 grain muzzy

I know it would be more efficient with a closed breach but is it possible to burn that much powder in that length barrel? Even the old black powder rifles weren't using near that, .50-90, .50-110, .45-70 etc.
