What size patch is everyone who shoots a TC Firestorm shooting with a .490 roundball? Picked one up recently, so any help will be greatly appreciated!
My Firestorm shot better with Powerbelts than round balls, but I have heard /read guys say just the opposite. I got rid of my Firestorm a couple of years ago as it never shot as well as my PA Hunter. Have you tried powerbelts?
I would try the lighter 245 grain Power Belts. Mine shoots them great. A 1/48 will do much better with lighter and therefore shorter projectiles.NO, because my last flinter was stolen from my dad's truck a few years ago, and I never replaced it. This one came around, and I grabbed it for a good price. I may try them, an see how it goes.

thats why i got rid of my firestorm. when the powder in the pan would ignite, i would flinch everytime it went off. i missed a doe one time, two of them standing together, the pan ignited but the gun didnt go off. i figured more powder in the pan would make sure the gun goes boom.
i filled that pan, plus some....pan and gun goes KA-BOOM...KA-BLOOEY....the smoke finally clears and i can see again and there are two deer looking at the cloud of smoke slowing drifting thru the woods. i guess they couldnt figure out what blew up. my buddy who was about 60 yards away in a treestand watched the entire show and thought i blew myself up when that shot went off. i could hear him laughing from where i was.
did i mention i like inlines better
