getting started

I just bought a TC Triumph.I want to prepare properly for sighting it in.What a good powder,bullet to use?Anything you think I should stay away from.What accessories for loading and cleaning would be best.A starter kit came with the gun, but usually, they aren't the best items.I bought the gun to start entering draws out west for elk/mule deer.I'm sure that makes a difference when setting up for possible long shots at large animals.Should I use the hollow point bullets or not.Thanks for your help, as I need all I can get.Very happy with my choice of gun which you guys helped with

I like the T/C Shockwaves in front of 2 Pyrodex pellets (100 gr). I'm using this load in my Pro Hunter and it seems to work well.

UNcle shooting the TC shockwaves as well in front of 100gr looses 2f 777 and most importantly.....Federal Fusion 209 primers. The primers made all the difference for him. Tighten groups up tremendously.
