    What's you muzzleloader of choice , there is a big debate powder vs pellets , do you just stay with what works and happy with? If you compared pellets vs powder you would be out alot of money comparing powder vs pellets what is your bullets of choice, what kind of accuracy are you getting with yours , because with pellets grain you can't tighten up the group if it's shooting 2 inches high or low , vs measuring out powder to see if it will tighten up your shot

    T/C Pro hunter .50 cal with a Nikon 3-9x40 Nikon BDC scope on it. Had this setup for years. Love it. It’s a great shooting gun. Don’t see myself changing from it.

    I have owned several brands of mzl over the yrs. Knight CVA TC and Traditions.
    For the money cva and traditions make a good gun.
    But TC and Knight are far superior it's like a Simmons and a Leupold.
    I think powder shoots better in cva than pellets do, they seem to be pickier at what they shoot.

    I like my T/C Black Diamond .50 Cal. Tried several types of propellants like: Pyrodex, and Triple 7 powder pellets with marginal results in accuracy. Found that loose Triple 7 (90 grains volume) + 250 grain .451" Hornady XTP sabot was the most accurate in my Black Diamond. Accuracy runs .750" @ 100 yards.

    BH209 + Barnes bullets. You could shoot it out of a potato gun and kill deer.

    TC Encore 50 is definitely a good choice. I love mine. Will definitely get stainless next time though. And easy access breach plug...

    For me it’s a T/C Encore Endeavor 50CAL. I use Blackhorn 209, combined with a 250 grain T/C Shockwave bullet. That combination is extremely accurate, and is also very deadly. I’ve shot this setup for several years, and have no plans whatsoever to change.
