Animal specific loads

Postby wschutte1 » January 6th, 2013, 12:15 pm

I am brand new into muzzleloading. Just bought a Knight Mountaineer .50 cal. I'm anxious to get to the range with it. Living in CO, we are not allowed to use sabots or pellets. What should I be using for bullets (belted?), primers, powder loads (brand?) etc for deer, elk, and moose? Assume I know nothing and you'd be right. Thanks.

I would use thors. https://thorbullets.com/Products.html and for powder blackhorn 209 and primer CCI 209m you can call thor and they will send you a sample pack for free to see what size your bore is.
