thinking of buying a new muzzle loader this year and don't want to brake the bank..any suggestions.
I get under an 1.5" with mine using 2 T7 50g and a 250SW. Swab between shots with 50/50 IPA/Windex followed by one dry patch both sides. I do slightly better with loose T7. I don't seem to have a problem with the plug, comes out pretty easy even after a dozen or so shots. The Weather Shield feature is useless, may look nice but really serves no purpose.With the Triumph I get a 3" shot group at 100 yards. It may be the cheap Cabelas scope I have on there though.
The Bergara barrels are a cheaper (spanish made) alternative to the actual (American made)TC encore barrels. They are usually at least $50 cheaper sometimes closer to $100 cheaper. The Bergara ML barrels for the TC encore sell right around $200 so I'm currious what you mean by a $400 option. TC doesn't sell their ML's with an option of a Bergara barrel and if they did they would have to knock off a $100. They are decent barrels for the $ but are spanish made and therefore cheaper to buy. I've heard of some issues with the quality of the steels used but have not experienced any problems with the ones I've had.the cva accura comes with a "bergara" barrel that thompson sells as almost a $400 option
Are you looking for something new or used? If you want an inexpensive ML look around for a TC black diamond. You can pick them up in like new condition around $150-200 and they are great shooters. If looking new the Omega or Trimuph are good choices. With Knight closing its doors recently you may be able to find a deal on them as well.thinking of buying a new muzzle loader this year and don't want to brake the bank..any suggestions
