I am a die hard archery hunter but I respect all forms of hunting. My step-father past away a few years back and he has a 50 sitting in the gun cabnet. So consdiering I have time and still a tag to use I thought I would go to the range and shoot some. Then I remembered that you had to buy the ML stamp before a certain date or so I thought. I am glad they changed it just for the simple fact I stumbled onto some time when it is in season and I feel using this gun would feel good, getting a shot/deer would be real good, but I know its not that easy. It is a traditions 50. Any help as far as powder amounts etc etc would be greatly appreciated. I would like to shoot sabots if poss. I am pretty sure it has a 1/48 twist. also can I shoot pellets with it?
