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.

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.
