Thread: Old TC

  1. #1

    Default Old TC

    Pulled out the old grey hawk this afternoon. Hadnt shot it but a few times since i bought it last year. 90gr pyrodex with 395gr great plains bullet. 50yds offhand. Might actually make that mountain muzzleloader hunt ive been wanting to do. Planned on buying a cva optima but as good as this shoots i might not need one

    I have a 50 cal T/C New Englander I bought many years ago when we had to use sidelocks with no scopes.It about the same gun as yours but it is blued/walnut.It was the first quality muzzleloader I ever used and I killed a boatload of deer,and some of the biggest deer with it.

    I'd rather be using the 209 primer over using a weapon using a # 11 cap. CVA my choice. imo

    I run musket caps/nipples on my T/C Hawken. Far more reliable than a #11 cap.

    I did, but quit hunting with it after my shoulder injury. I sold the Hawken a couple of months ago.

    Flintlock! My son would be highly impressed with your choice. He wants to do the same some day. Nice seeing you as well.

    The next 300 yard military style rifle match will be on the 2nd Saturday of May.
    I need to get to the range and practice soon.

    I switched out the #11 nipple with a nipple for musket caps... haven't ever had another misfire after doing that.
