BTW, they shot two whole boxes of Pyrodex pellets this morning. Had a blast!
it's personal choice but I would suggest the 260gr. Shockwave BUT then again that would depend on how well the shooters can group them.
try using the 3 round sight in rule fire three rounds and determine accuracy.
Here's a TiP, make sure the muzzleloader is thouroughly cleaned before heading out and when you fire the first round You should Run one wet cleaning patch followed up with a dry patch THEN Load up for the next shot
shoot the second round again use one wet patch and follow it with a dry patch THEN load up for the next shot Now fire the third round. now check your target and see how well the shooter did. it only takes a little more time to run them patches between shots but, the grouping will be more accurate if you follow this procedure.
