I am getting a 50 cal renigade( I had one years ago) and would like input from other owners as to thier ammo and load of powder. When I last shot my old renigade I was using sabots. With this new one I want to start out right. I know "right" might not be everyones "right", just would like input, THANKS
I have had mine since 1982, have tried a few different loads over the years. I just keep it simple with .490 rb .015 prelubed patch over 80 grs. of 3f.
This load has been very effective for me on whitetails over the years.
“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.”
With my 50 cal. renegade I use 90 gr. of Goex 2f with .490 rb and a .015 patch. for me my max distance for deer with the 50cal is 50 yds.
My 54 cal renegade I use 100 gr of Goex 2f with a .530 rb and .015 patch. my Maxium distance with the 54cal. is 75 yds. These are my hunting loads, I usually only use about 50 grains of powder at the muzzleloading meets. no sense of wasting powder.
AS far as shooting conicals both mine like T/C maxi balls the best. never could get much accuracy out of the t/c maxi hunters.
