Muzzleloader miss
« on: May 04, 2023, 12:54:45 PM »
So my brother had a miss a couple weeks back at 25 steps with my muzzleloader-TK2000.  His son killed one with it two years ago, my son killed one with it a week later.  he has a side by side ML that he missed a jake in the fall with.  I told him mine was dead on, take it, and then he missed a longbeard.

So it got me to wondering if it was the gun or the shooter.  next post I will put a pic up of the pattern at 25 yards.

If he had taken a few prior practice shots he may have developed a flinch   My TK kicks so much I've seriously worried about detached retina. Not a gun for woozies.

I'm going to bump this up since it is now "patterning time".  That 25 yard pattern is very typical for my TK2000.  I've tested it out to 35 yards and the pattern is still very good.  I would not hesitate to take a 40 yard shot.  I think the TK has again been discontinued.  The ones I see on Gunbroker always bring big money.  I have added an extra recoil pad to mine.  It helps somewhat.  Good luck this season.

Yes it works really well. That is with that recipe I posted. I use that exact same recipe in the Encore. I back off 10grs of powder in the Huntsman.
