A very good friend of mine has one for over 15 years I think it is the one you could get throuh Cabelas back in the day - it is nice , a very nice shotgun , I think it had screw in chokes too

He was shooting it with steel shot cups unslited ,  and lead - not sure but it performed quite well

I own the same gun, its rated for 109gr of ffg powder and 1 1/2oz of shot! I built mine from a kit a couple months ago, and i love it! Mine doesnt have screw in chokes, but rather a cylinder barrel, and a modified barrel. Ive shot it many times thus far, ive worked up a "General" game load that consists of 90gr Pyrodex RS, and 1 1/4oz of #6 shot, should be bad medicine on pheasants out to 35yds. I did play around with a turkey load for it, and i would go with 105gr Pyrodex RS, and 1 1/2oz of buffered #6. The cylinder barrel would be my <25yd barrel, and the modified my 25-35yd barrel :z-guntootsmiley: It throws an even pattern with that setup, i have yet to try 10ga plastic shotcups in it, but intend to. One heads up though...most 10ga shotcups will accept more lead than what the gun is rated for :character0029: Id get a scale and begin cutting down a shotcup in length until you get to where the shotcup is coming in at 1 1/2oz when topped off. They measure and remember that length, or cut a bunch right off the bat :OGturkeyhead:

How do they pattern?  Wonder about 1 1/2 oz of hevishot #7s

Either way, the old way of thinking was if you want more lead go up in gauge. Well, by todays standards 1 1/2oz of shot isnt alot of pellets, with a HTL load its actually less :anim_25: Accept the gun for what it is, and itll fulfill what its meant to do! I have a Knight TK 2000 thats rated for 2 1/2oz of shot and 120gr of powder, and believe it or not...its far from the "Best" patterning load that the gun produces.

I contacted their U.S dealer.  He said the newer pistol grip model with chokes is 995$
Seems like alot of money for a muzzleloader but boy do they look good.

Thinking about a ideal buckshot load.

3 .50 cal round balls equal about 1 1/2 oz payload i think.
That's 1,600ftlbs at 1100fps. Or some hornady 58cal rbs.

What do you think about goex powder?
