T/C Renegade Loads
Ok, new to these flintlocks as you all know. Getting ready to head to the range now that the lock if functioning. I know each rifle is different but I have to following to try. Hornady .490 with different size patches to try, Hornady PA Conical s, and T/C maxi hunters the lighter version. I am going to use real black powder 3f. I plan on trying from 70 to about 90 grains. Some with a felt patch some with out. To try and find out exactly what the rifle likes.
Do any of you have any sage advise? I am hoping the PRB will shoot good as I want to keep it traditional. But I also want to make sure I have a rifle that can deliver a quick clean kill shot. (Ethical) I think all three will kill ok but now I need to find out what shoots the best. Is there anything I have forgotten or should try? Any advise will be great appreciated.
Take you kids hunting and you will never have to hunt for your kids.
