I just bought a Savage 10ml-2 smokeless muzzleloader wondered if anyone had any advice or good loads to try
Didn't want you to think you were getting ignored. I'm not much for knowledge on the "ole smoke poles". I'm sure ebear is going to have a field day with that one.
Nope, Greasypaws is the man to ask about that stuff....not that i mind the ole pole getting smoked!!!lol
i like pyrodex pellets rather than loose powder.the load depends on bullet type and caliber
what i mean. he's da man!!!!!
it is a 50 cal i am using accurate 5744 powder not sure on what bullet or sabot to try
are you gonna hunt with this gun or just target shoot?the last muzzle stuffer i had i was shooting 375 grain speer bullets thru it with 120 grains(3-60 grain pellets)of pyrodex.works dandy for deer.do you have any of the factory literature for your gun?it should have some recommended loads or even maximum loads for it to give you a base line
try this link:http://www.savagearms.com/images/pdf/manuals/MLII_loads.pdf
it is a pdf file for model 10.if the link wont work then go www.savagearms.com and go into the muzzle loader section and it will have a section with load data.use this info as a starting point.let the company do the load developement for you as a base starting point.
I will be deer hunting with this. Yes i have the books with it it has some loads listed i was just looking for a starter load to play with. I dont want to use black powder. when using smokeless powder u only have to clean it every 100 shots rather than every shot
ok ill try that web site
the pyrodex aint near as dirt as loose black powder and is real easy to load in pellet form,especially for followup shots.
I found some pyrodex magnum pellets. Worked great
