Looks like these will work fine in my gun. I sighted it in finally yesterday at noon, and it is holding a 4" group at 100 yards. That's not perfect, but I think it's good enough. thanks for the comments...maybe I'll try a different combo next year.

Flexj I take it you're shooting open sights? 4" @100 with open sights ok, if scoped then I'd switch to something different as you indicated, for next year. I haven't tried those powerbelts but like I posted earlier it seems about 50/50 as to whether a rifle likes them or not. My TC triumph digests about everything equally TC Shockwaves, Barnes, and Precision bullets. The Knight did about as well. Good luck hunting hope you score with the ML.

I actually put a scope on this one. I wasn't going to, but when I got the gun out of the box I found that they shorted me on a set of sights. I went to buy some, and just decided to get a scope instead. I feel like I am cheating now...

Thanks, and good luck to you too! Are you taking the flintlock out this year?

Hopefully, I've covered both Ohio and PA with late season vacations.

Thumbs up Switch to Hornady

Before I bought my TC Omega I used a Traditions Buckstalker. I started with the 245 gr. PowerBelts and 2 50gr. 777 pellets. This load shot 3-4" groups which some would say is hunting accurate. Being picky about accuracy I tried Hornady's 250 gr. High Speed - Low Drag sabots. I now shoot 1" groups at 100 yards with both guns and these sabots are just as easy to load as the PowerBelts. Hope this helps.
