Your right Dallen, typo typo typo
|Also the Pyrodex pellets are not for use in an in-line.|
Pellets ARE for use in in-line rifles but not for cap-lock and flintlock rifles per the Hodgdon website. Thanks for picking up on that typo (BIG FAT ERROR)
I found my TC Renegade had a considerable build up of lead with an accuracy drop off at about 30 rounds when using the Maxi's. Might be the pure lead I was using, actually plumbers lead to cast the bullets. I wanted the softest metal for expansion. That much pure lead in any configuration is an awesome performer in the Cap-lock or Flintlocks.
And I agree that the difference at 120 yds is not much and that would be a good zero. I use a Burris with a ballistic plex reticle on my in-line and I sight in at 100 and the first dot down is right on at 150. I still need to work out the distance on the lower dots but I think they would be close at 175 and 200. Range time will tell.
But when all is said and done it looks like the Triple Se7en granular fffg will be the most accurate, cleaner burning, and higher velocity than the T7 pellets. Lots of ML shooters are going that way. The easy loading of the pellets is nice but I'm looking for better accuracy and from what I am seeing posted elsewhere it seems that the fffg granular is the ticket. At least I will try it and see if it helps the accuracy in my rifle.
Shooting a muzzleloader over a chronograph is a pain and it is easier to make a drop chart by shooting the same load at different ranges and recording the drop from the zero range.
It is also interesting that you are getting good results with round ball's in an in-line. Have you tried the round balls in a sabot? Someone sells them that way. I have so much load work pending now that I put the sabot ball's on hold for a while. Ball's do a good job of killing deer and shoot flatter too.
Speaking of load work I need to set up camp at the range for a week to get all the load work done. The seasons are getting close.
