I am ready to start learning this art of Muzzle Loading. Who would like to help me out with some hands on? I will drive to where-ever you are, within reason of course. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks MWT!
Nicholas, well either Pyro pellets or T7 pellets. The T7s are more expensive. The Hornady 250 SST bullets shoot very well for most guys and gals that use them. Hornady also makes them for Thompson and it is called a Shockwave. Start out with two pellets and see what kind of accuracy you have. If you watch any of the Outdoor channels you'll see them load up with three pellets of Pyro and the 250 SST. Three pellet loads have a fairly good thump to the shooter as well. Nikon makes a scope just for this load called the 250 BDC. It is a multi reticle scope just for this load out to 250 yards. I also suggest you use a spit patch and a couple of dry ones between each shot ro those sabots get to be a bear to load. Buy lots of patches. Also think about getting a nice T-handle range rod while you're at it.
Men, set a date and I will try like heck to be there! I am busy coaching baseball the next 2 weekends but may be able to sneak a shoot in. Just let me know. I am itching to get ready to get ready!!!!:sniper:
This sounds good to me, anybody want to meet at BPS tonight for the 7-11 buyers? I am a judge Saturday for a school tournament, feel free to stop by and watch by the way, 3pm at Champion Martial Arts, Cottleville, off of N & Mid Rivers. But Sunday, oh yes, lets do it dances, if you are still up to it! I was at Busch this afternoon and they have this new trap voice activated puller that pisses you off. If you say great shot buddy, it pulls, if you say I forgot my safety, it pulls, can not tell you how sensitive that thing is! Anyway, let's do it! If not, then some other time!
1st thing in the morning is best. We can go to either Busch or Reifsnieders as reccomended by Hatch (althought I've never been there so I would need directions). If any others can't make it I'm sure this won't be the last outting this year--I'm always up for slinging some lead.
Nicholas did great! He had his new MLer pretty much dialed in with five shots. Which of course left some time for him to tutor me a bit in the art of pistol firing (thanks, Nicholas. can't wait for the nextlesson).... There is no doubt--this man is an EXPERT with the pistol.
Thanks to Hatch for recomending this (new to us) range. It worked out great so we are sure to return. I hope next time you or others in the area can join in the fun.
