Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My wife and I have been hunting for many years and we used to own a Savage 10 ML II. Life, kids, and other things got in the way and we got out of it, and we sold the Savage quite a while ago. With the kids moved out and on their own we have finally started back into hunting. The Savage was a great rifle and we both enjoyed shooting it. If I remember correctly we used the MMP black sabot with a 250 grain XTP and Nosler 250 grain pistol bullet with 38 grains of VV N110 powder. Easy to shoot, very accurate, and very little recoil. So, it is time to get back into muzzle loading. This forum seems to be the most friendly and informative site I have browsed so far and this is where I have decided to call home. So, looking forward to getting to know people and learning about the new technology that is out there.
Welcome back to the sport! The R&D of smokeless muzzleloading has made some leaps in the past half dozen years and the bullets that are available today albeit expensive, are second to none. Again congrats on your triumphant return and good luck hunting.
