Re: new to big bore smoke pole
The Max load for a renegade is 120grn.
I shoot 80grn FFg w/ patched round ball and 100grn w/ the 435grn T/C maxi ball and both hit close to the same POI.
120grn will smack your cheek. This was my father's smokepole and he used to hunt w/ a buddy who had all the accessories. I had to learn all about it after he passed. He always said it really smacked his cheek. When I got a powder measure I dumpped one of his pre-measured vials and found he had been shooting around 140grn, no wonder it smacked his jaw!
