I use a T/C Renegade .54cal sidelock w/roundball 230gr . For me there is something about traditional gear. Since 1989 been using the T/C only and I haven't picked up a modern rifle since then. I thing it puts more of a sport in it. Nothing wrong with mod-rifles, but they aren't for me.

.50 cal Knight BK-92, 2 50 grain pellets of pyodex, and a 250gr. Knight Red Hot Sabot
also shooting the roundball here cva frontier carbine
.50cal looking to up grade to some type of hawken.the inlines are nice but just not my cup of tea
Here's an old one revisited

T/C Omega 130gr pyrodex pellets and 240 grain hollowpoints, topped with 2x7 leupold
CVA Optima Pro,295 gr. powerbelt,150 gr. pyrodex topped w/ Bushnell scope,mmmmmmmmm good ![up] 200 yards on the money.
In my inline used to shoot the 230 grain hollowpoints with sabots with 100grains of 777. The last batch of Thompson XTP's I purchased the sabots are oversized, hence they are too difficult to ram down the barrel. Switched to Powerbelts.....Maybe I should change my screen name.

In my side lock 1-60 twist patched round balls are the only thing that shoot accuratly. These I shoot with 70 grains of Cleanshot. Round balls are too much trouble for hunting so I shoot the hollow base "balletts" from Buffalo Bullet Company. These guve me a 4" group at 50 yds with 80 grains of Cleanshot.
Knight Master Hunter .50 cal topped with a 3.5X10 Zeiss Conquest. 3 x 50 grain pellets of 777 behind
