I know we got people here that use muzzle loading firearms, but I am curious as to how many here used patched round ball to fill their tag? My deer rifle is a Hawken Woodsman percussion rifle from Traditions. It's .50 caliber with the optional 1/66" rifling twist for best accurracy with patched round ball. I use a .490 diameter ball with a patch cut from a strip of pillowticking thats been greased with CVA's Slick Load lube. 80grs of Goex FFG, the real gunpowder you know. That smokeless stuff is just a passing fad.
