Patterning issues

Patterning issues

Postby CannonQ » April 22nd, 2014, 5:55 am

Have a Tk that's being fussy. Already shoot several muzzle loading shotguns.
Need a recommended load and wad. Shooting an uncut wad and load that I use in my encore and getting poor results.
The above mentioned combo works very well out of my TC's and my Perdosoli doubles.
The knight wads work much better, just trying to understand why there is so much difference.
I did cut the wad and got slightly better performance, but nothing I would hunt with.
Thanks.

Try using a LBC 50 wad (cut 4 petals down to the next to last rib) from ballistic products, with 1 7/8 oz of Hevishot, over 100 gr of BP or 90 grains of T7. Killed a bird last year with that combo at 40 yds, and wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger at 50 yds.

Slightly off track, I had a double ML shotgun, it would not pattern no matter what I did. I was loading equal amounts of powder-shot. I found a copy of VM Starr book, the muzzle loading shotgun. I reduced the powder charge by 8-10%. Results, 43 number 6 shot in a soda can at 30 yards.
I hope this might help someone.
