Get some remington or winchester muzzleloaders primers.More accurate.Also some Hornaday SST saboted or Barnes TEZ saboted bullets for accuracy.

shot my omega today and it shot great.first shot at 25yds hit 1 inch to the right of bull,second shot at 50yds same placement as the first one.next shot was at 100yds hit 3 inches low below the bull.all this was done with open sights.my load was 77gr weighted of blackhorn 209,barnes t-ez bullets and federal 209 primers.i shot a total of 7 shot and everyone of the barnes loaded with ease and i did not clean the barrel.the blackhorn powder is great easy to load after many shots with out cleaning,very little smoke.anybody looking for a new powder to try try the blackhorn 209,it is alittle pricey but is worth it.
