Might as well keep this going! 8)
Right now I'm using a Remington 770 in .270 with Federal Premium 150 gr. Vital-Sock (until the box runs out) AND I use my CVA .50 cal inline muzzleloader!
In central Wisconsin I don't have too many long range shots so the .270 is fine. I intend to step up to a .300 or .308 soon (probably not before the season though).
However, I LOVE my muzzleloader!!! It is so much fun to shot and the recoil is almost nothing. I haven't put the scope (1x) on it yet and I might not, I like the fiber-optics that are on it!!! Sure it's only one shot but that's all I usually get anyway!!!
Look luck and good hunting!
You can do anything you want, but you'll eventually have to answer to THE MAN for it!
