I own one, I bought it last year and found 2 pellets 777 and a Hornady FPB work well.

Re: PA pellet flintlock

I've found 2-50 grn pellets of pyrodex and the 240grn 44/50 hornady JHP's work really well in the PA pellets.

Re: PA pellet flintlock

cabalas sells the traditions hunter package, similar to the pa pellet but 2" smaller barrel. Is this gun any good?

Re: PA pellet flintlock

They are good guns for the price . I like 80 grains of fff with a 250 Maxie hunter . They have soft frizzens so you will have tow change it in a year or two but mine shoots good and trow and has put meat in the freezer for me .

Re: PA pellet flintlock

I have a PA Pellet also and like it. If the package is a Traditions Deer Hunter, I wouldn't recommend it IMO. Just because the Deer Hunter doesn't have a removable breech plug.

Re: PA pellet flintlock

I've bought two PA Pellets...love them! Gave one to my nephew and I the newest model with metal sight rather than the plastic ones. Like it better than the Firestorm because of their heavy trigger pull and the octagon barrel is helpful when putting it in a vice if the breech plug gets too tight. ~ 2 inch groups at 50 yards, and I'm not a great shot. 70-80 grains of powder with either a 245 or 295 grn Powerbelt has worked well in both of my PA Pellets. I spent the extra cash got the stainless/synthetic stock model.

Re: PA pellet flintlock

I can get a PA pellet in a .50cal, stainless, with snow camo syn. stock for 300.00, or a deerhunter .50 with blued barrel and black syn. stock for 230.00 both are new at a local dealer....which is a better deal????

Thanks, Daron

Enjoy hunting in the Western PA

I have the full camo PA Pellet. I also switched out the plastic sights for RMC's steel sights, those plastic sights they equipped them with are junk IMO.
