Need some expertice

I recently horse traded someone for a inline muzzleloader and I own a flintlock too however I'm not sure what type of projectiles to use with the inline, can anyone suggest a pictular brand or give me some suggestions...
The inline is a TC - 50 cal.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Any day in the woods is a good day.

Re: Need some expertice

There are so many good projectiles available today, that it is much a matter of personal preference of the shooters. But, suggesting the sabot load with the 300gr. Barnes hollow point all-copper slug..It has worked well for me in back of Pyrodex select.

I have a Winchester and use 245 Gr HP Powerbelts and Pyrodex Pellets.

Treat people as if they're what they ought to be & you help them become what they can be.

245GR shockwaves with 100GR Pyrodex pellets works good in my T/C Omega

295gr powerbelt, 70gr Pyrodex P, Winchester 777 primers.

Its not a guarantee that your TC will shoot conicals, so if it doesnt. Move on to sabots.

Re: Need some expertice

I have a T/C Omega X7 that eats (2) 777 pellets with 245gr T/C Shockwaves. I run a spit patch between shots and it groups an inch and half or so at 100yds. The gun is topped with a 3-9 Leupold. I shot woodchucks all summer consistently up to 180 yards. There is no better way to learn a gun that to take it woodchuck hunting. I can't wait to take the T/C Firestorm next summer.
