i chose a vortek by traditions as my first muzzleloader.I like the accuracy ive seen in some reviews.I went to the gun shop to check it out then ordered one from cabelas.got some triple7 , 250gr shockwaves , hornady xtps,hopefully it will like one of those.Any other bullets i should absolutly try and what are the essentials i need for cleaning.Also any cleaning procedures and tips.thanks guys for help and suggestions.anybody shooting a vortek,opinions,loads, etc.thanks
its always nice hearing when someone chooses a Traditions, especially the Vortek which is hands down a top of ther line muzzleloader,,,
2 =50 grain trip 7 pellets behind the 250grain shockwave and you're sniper accurate!!!
good luck spiker ,, let me know how things turn out at the range...
thanks bruce keep ya posted,i bought pyrodex&triple 7.Are muzzleloaders like shooting slugs guns meaning you gotta find what they like.
Spiker, Thought you might be interested in reading this Vortek review by Randy Smith at chuckhawks....
I would add Barnes bullets to your trial shooting. I think 777 and Black Horn powders outperform pyrodex by a long shot, no pun intended. BB works for traditions (I believe) so he is a big supporter for them. :w00t: Good luck on the new purchase.
You may want to try some Barnes bullets and Harvester Crush Rib Sabots.
I don't work for Traditions but I sure wish I did...
well got the scope mounted and maybe can shoot it this w.end.just have to clear 4ft of snow first.will see what happens,gkeep ya posted.
Spiker, I've been wanting the Vortek since it hit the market and I was going to wait until it arrived so I could take pictures to announce that I just ordered the .50 cal. Traditions Vortek G1 Vista but I guess I'll let ya know now.
I'll post picks as soon as it arrives.. in the meantime this is a stock photo from the Traditions website.
Talk about Fast Service... I ordered my new Traditions Vortek muzzle loader on Dec.8th today is the 10th and it just arrived...
That is some speedy service right there!!!!
Another example of why Traditions products and services are top notch in my book.!
not the greatest photo but I'll post better ones when I get it out in the field to do some shooting...
