To date, TC Omega, Nikon omega scope, barnes 290 gr on top of 100 gr BH. However, the TC Triumph with the Leupold Rifleman 250 gr shock waves and 100gr BH shoots great also. The TC FireHawk sports the Tasco scope shooting 250 shock waves and 100 gr BH very nice groups too. The Knight disc extreme laminate with a 2x7 redfield shooting 250 gr shock waves with 100 gr BH stays with anything out there. The Fire Hawk is musket cap fired.

Traditions Vortek with a Bushnell Banner 3x9 . Both are camo.
82 grains of Blackhorn 209 with a 463 grain cast bullet (my own) in a Harvester Crushed Rib sabot.

Dropped two mulies this year. Both were clean pass throughs and both dropped in their tracks.

my Traditions Vortek came with a Traditions scope included,
I don't know who actually manufactures scopes for Traditions Performance Muzzleloaders but the Vortek with the 3-9x32 combo is an awesome match.
I use two 50Gr Triple 7 pellets and the 250gr Traditons Smackdown SST bullets.
you could cover my 3 round 100 yard groups with a 1/2 dollar.

I guess I'll put my own old rifle in. A TC Pro Hunter 50 cal, 290 grain barnes bullets with the blue easy load sabot, 110 grains of blackhorn and a standard
Winchester shotgun primer. Topped with a Nikon Omega for the eye relief.
