Long time reader here, around 15 years. Wife bought me this flintlock for Christmas, practiced with it and used it hunting all late season. I'm HOOKED.....the "store" sold her triple 7 pellets and 295 grain Power Belts, and I had a hard time grouping them. I want to start shooting with Goex 2X powder and roundballs, anyone know what these guns like to shoot? Any help is very appreciated.
I just got one too. Mine groups great with 3f 777 and 250rg sst sabots but the group is way too high on poi. If yours is the new ultralight like mine it has a 1:28 twist barrel and fwir that is too fast for patches round balls at normal velocities. If it is one with the octagon barrel it is 1:48 and you should be ok with prb
Thanks for the help! I just don't want to be paying $20 plus dollars for powerbelts and nearly $40 for the pellets. This is my first flintlock, and now I just need to hit the range soon with the PRB's and powder. My only regret is not getting into flintlock's years ago, although I missed 2 this late season it really prolonged my season. I'm hooked!
I tried everything with mine, found that flintlocks have deeper rifle grooves and they do not seal the sabots as good as inlines, My inlines shoot sabots great, but my Pa. Pellet does not. I know if you have time to test you will find whats best in your rifle, Mine likes round balls. Also the trigger is adjustable, which makes a huge difference.
