What powder/bullet combo for new Triumph?
I've just purchased a new Triumph and am fitting it with a Nikon BDC scope. What are the suggestions for powder and bullet combos?

I use 100gr pyrodex and 200gr shockwaves. Tight to load but pretty accurate.

Load for TC Triumph
I use 100 gr pyrodex pellets with 250 gr TC Shockwave Sabots. Gives good groups at 50 yards. Have not put scope on it yet so have not tried 100 yards. Nice gun.

power/bullet combo for Triumph
Here's what I'm workin on now..getting it sighted in. Triumph 50 cal, Nikon Omega, Win 205 primers, 100 grains triple 7 pellets and 350 grain Hornady FPB's. At 100 yds, I'm shooting 2 inch groups of 3. I love how the Hornady's load so easy. I haven't had a chance to see how the BDC will work at longer distances, might have to up the powder and re-calibrate. I'll let you know after next monday.

I'm somewhat of a newbie as well, so I'm thinking of switchin to Kleanbore primers, from what I've read it makes a lot of difference, or switching to a Variflame converstion kit to use rifle primers. I've seen, firsthand, how the rifle primers greatly improve your accuracy and consistency. (thanks George K. from Marion, OH).

Good luck and good killing. :biggrin:

welcome badman. keep us updated.

Great information badman, let me know how the shooting goes. I had a friend say to use triple 7 powder and hornady bullets, he said to use the standard 209 primer but you differ on that, whats the +/- of the 205's compared to the 209? I'm still very new to this as well, sorry for the stupid question.:crazy:

Check out this website. Russell Lynch is after one thing... Achieving the maximum accuracy in a muzzleloader. He has 2 DVD's out that are a must watch if you are serious about muzzleloading. He breaks down muzzleloading into each component (ignition,bullets primer, cleaning,etc) and provides recomendations. If you want maximum accuracy then you should use powder vs pellets. I shot pellets for the last several years and am going back to 777 ffg powder with the TC shockwave 250gr. Hope this helps.

Do you have his videos Roz? His site looked pretty new and didnt offer any freebies yet. Not that I found anyway. Was hoping for some good articles on it.
