i shot a .50 Cal TC Omega.  I love it, it was affordable and shoots awsome.  Its not to heavy, and its the only muzzleloader i've ever owned but i've shot a couple and the Omega was definatly a good buy for me.  And its very accurate!

Over the years I have bought three TC's. All 50 cal. Hawkins percussion cap, Omega and an Encore. The latter two are scoped with a Nicon buckmasters 3 x 9. You can almost pound tacks at 100 yards, but the Hawkins is the most fun to shoot.

zmiester,

Try shooting loose powder. You get a more uniform burn, and don't have to worry about lag between pellets if they don't seat well.

Hope this helps.

A Pursuit LT 50cal break open....It's light ...easy to load and clean...and shoots great....I bought Mr B a 50 Cabelas flint cap years ago...it's Italian made and a beautiful...short barreled woods gun....Shoots very nice...haven't been able to talk him into any other Blk powder rifle.....Bought his dad a TC Encore...expensive but he loves it and it breaks open to clean....

I would LOVE an encore! I just don't have the cash to put down for one of those! I'm in hopes to pick up a T/C Triumph next year.
