Whats your projectiles of choice that you have found to be accurate with the 1/48 twist? Gonna be spending some time this summer and looking for some options. I have been shooting the Maxi-Hunters behind 90 grains of 2F.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
295 Aerotip Powerbelts and 90gr.(settled) of 2F BP. Seat the Powerbelt firmly on the powder but no need to pound it down. I run a spit patch after every shot. Five shot group at 75 yards of just under 2".....Yep, it's that accurate. The biggest issue that I've found with people shooting any muzzleloader is that many are not very good at shooting with open sights. It takes a lot of practice, but open sights can be deadly accurate at surprisingly long ranges.
powerbelts have been the choice for my brother,we spend a lot of time playing with different loads[which by the way will make you a better shooter no matter what you load] 70-85 grains depends if using 2F or 3F.just a little 4F in the pan,to much will bring you disapoinment
