I've been looking at getting a Knight long-range hunter in 52 cal for a while and found that they can use saboted .458 cal bullets, does anyone know of a load that uses 500 gr. .458 bullets like the Barnes TSX? Is such a load even possible? I'm just curious.:unsure::confused: I want to use a muzzleloader for grizzly bear and figured if such a load is possible, this would be the load to use.

Sorry on this one, I don't have any updated knowledge on this newer bullet offering. A bit of old history, many of the the origional Hawken rifles were in 52 cal using upwards of 120 grs of blackpowder. Wishi could be of more help but....

I just ordered the mountaineer for the dyna coat that the long range hunter does not have. I have a disc extreme now that I love but I am looking forward to longer range shots, mostly at the range. Most of my kills here happen between forty and ninety yards. I am looking forward to teetering at the range and getting it dialed in and maybe one day taking a trip out to a place where the shots are long and the Bucks are huge. Happy hunting.
