Anybody hunt with an in-line muzzleloader? How about a NEF "Huntsman"? I just bought one of those. I've been hunting with a Tradtions Hawken .50 cal percussion rifle for the past few muzzleloader seasons. I picked up a New England Firearms Huntsman S.S. .50cal inline yesterday. I got some pyrodex pellets too, for use with my Hornady 300 gr XTP saboted bullets. My question is, how much is the maximum charge? I've got both 30 & 50 gr pellets. The instructions with the pellets say never exceed 100grs. The rifle's manual merely says "refer to powder manufacturer's instructions for loads". I know several guys who use 150grs (3 pellets) behind 240 or 260 gr bullets in their inlines with no problems, but none use the bigger 300 gr bullets. And none have the NEF brand rifle. Unlike reloading standard smokeless powder cartridges, you can't look for the signs of too much pressure when building up a load in a muzzleloader. I haven't fired it yet (I will tomorrow). I think I'll bring my chronograph, and see what velocity I get with 100 grs. I may increase gradually to see if there is an appreciable increase in velocity, and check accuracy as well. I can go to 110 by using two 30s and one 50. Then 120, by using four 30s. Then 130, by using two 50s and one 30. I've been reloading smokeless rifle, handgun, and shotgun ammo for years... but I'm kinda in the dark on the front-stuffers. Any suggestions? BTW, I got the NEF because every NEF I've ever owned was trouble free, very accurate, and priced right. And I'm a lefty, and NEFs are totally ambi. This rifle seems a perfect fit for me, too.
