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

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.

Looking on line, I saw 150 gr max charge. That's a lot of powder and I wouldn't think you need anywhere close to that. I shoot 110-grs of black powder in my 54 cal. Most shooters today are shooting 90-110 in 50 cals. There are a few shooting 150 using 3 pellets but I don't see the need.
