Hey All,

Who shoots one of these? I have solved the #11 issue (have a Musket and 209 Nipple).

I need some advice on a load combo -

1. Powder or Pellets (which, how much etc.)

2. Projectile -

A. Ball/Patch (it's a 1 in 28 so???)
B. PowerBelt (I shoot 270 Platinums in my CVA Optima Pro)
C. Maxi Balls...
D. Sabots

Let me know, I want to take her out for a SPIN!

See you in the woods...

Ron

From what I've read it will shoot a wide variety of bullets well. One person reported great accuracy with 245 grain Powerbelt Aerotips and another mentioned shooting bullets ranging from 185 grains - 250 grains.

Here are more reports:
