Pikechaser,

I like the pellets. I started with cleanshot pellets but could not find them any longer. I plan to use 777 pellets this fall. I like the pellets for hunting because of the ease of loading. I shot pyrodex also but that stuff is so slimey to clean up and corrosive that I chose not to use it. TC recommended pyrodex and TC bulk sabots. I also used 777 powder, it worked well and was easy to clean.

I stayed with about 100 - 120 grains of powder. The best bullet for me was the TC bulk sabots. I think they are packed with hornady bullets.

I really liked the powerbelt bullets for ease of loading. They just would not group in my gun and they are not cheap.

Find something that works for you and stick with it. Good luck.

I use a T/C Renegade .54 caliber. 90 gr. FFG with a patch and ball shoots really well out of this gun.

I use pyrodex pellets but I plan to switch to 777 soon. Hornady SST 250 grain bullets that get less than 2 inches at 100 yards. Also have some winchester platinum tip hollow points that group good for me also. Would like to try out some powerbelts soon. Stick with what works good for you. Brian
