Default Sighting in new gun

Hey I just recently bought a new gun, while sighting in how many shots can u take before it needs to be cleaned? Any thoughts I use 150g pyrodex if that makes a difference

I'd swab every shot with that dirty load. You'll probably get better accuracy with less powder.


What sort of hunting do you do?

well i'd be sure to read the manual and make sure you can use that much powder, loose or pellet powder for the matter.

I had a traditions evolution 50 and it shot great with 90gr pyrodex rs and a 250gr thor. You dont need 150gr mag charge, most times they are inaccurate.
