i was saying i did not like the group with the platinum. i did not know if you realized that was what i was saying or not. unless your just going to see if you can get a good group with them. i would think they would shoot alot better over loose powder instead of the pyrodex i shoot them with.

i have not used the loose stuff but got a good hunting partner that does. he switched to the loose from the pryodex and likes it alot better. and he claims to have more consistent groups with the stuff. i think he is gettin better groups because he bought a better gun.

Default Thompson Center Omega

I have the T/C Omega with Realtree Hardwoods stock and stainless barrel. I shoot two 50 grain pyrodex pellets and powerbelts. I would recomend this gun to anyone. It is a great firearm. I also like the T/C Pro Hunter. The Omega is fairly easy to clean. I get pretty good groups. Plus you could buy the Nikon Omega Scope with the BDC Reticle made for the Omega. It gives you different yardage circles for different shot ranges. Hope you get one you are happy with.
