My back up is the , Omega with 150[3 pellets] and a 200gr Shock Wave
My new Triumph is the one for AR this year, first deer was with 250 gr Gold Dot with 110 gr 777 the next will be with a 200gr Shock Wave and 110 gr 777.
My out west gun is the System One the 54 barrel uses either a 300gr 50cal Widner bullet with a Purple sabot and 140 gr RS or a Real bullet with 120gr RS; the 50 cal barrel uses MMP 12 with a 230 gr XTP or a 250gr XTP with 130 gr RS.

I'll be loading 80grs Goex FFF in my .54 caliber flintlock behind a cast ball...I won't be using my Knight Disc this year but when I do the load will be 90grs Goex FFF and a 250 shockwave.

My Wolf I bought after last season, my first muzzleloader. Topped off with a Nikon 2x7x32 Pro Staff. Shoots 2 50gr Pyrodex bullets, and either a 250 or 300 gr Barnes MZ Expander with crushed rib sabots.

Modern Season I will be hunting with a White Ultra Mag wearing a Nikon 2-7 Pro Staff scope. I will be shooting a 500 grain conical on top of 70 grains of Triple Se7en 3f. If I decide to field hunt, I will be using a Knight Disc with a 3-9v 40 Millet Buck and be shooting 120 grains of Triple Se7en 2f and a 250 grain Shockwave. When I hunt the marsh I will be using a White Bison .504 caliber loaded with 90 grains of Pyrodex P and a 450 gr UC Short Mag conical.

During Muzzleloader season, there is no telling what mood will hit me. I might be using a Renegade with a GMB stainless steel 1:28 twist loaded with 100 grains of Goex 2f and a 300 grain Hornady XTP .430 diameter in a Harvester Crushed Rib sabot. Or I have a couple other rifles that might get the chance to make some smoke.

When I hunt over my foodplots that offer shots out to 150 yards, I'll be using a Lyman Mustang 50 cal with 100 grains T-7 FFG under a 300 grain Speer Gold Dot.

When I hunt from a climber or ladder stand in the woods, I'll be using a 50 cal TC New Englander with 80 grains Pyrodex RS under a 410 grain Great Plains. (or, if I can get the sights right on the .58 Zouave, I might try that with a PRB over 90 grains JSG.)

I saw afew posts like this last year but I figured I'd start one since I hadn't seen any. Just tell what ur using in both your MLgun and your load for deer (If ya have more than one go for them all). I've got about 3.

1. CVA Wolf (50 cal)- somewhere between 80-100 gr. loose Pyrodex RS with a 240 XTP
2. CVA Optima (50 cal)- 100 gr. shockey w/ 245 gr. Powerbelts
3. White Mountain Carbine(50 cal)-90 gr. Pyrodex RS with a round ball
Savage 10ML 2, 44g of 5744 and 275g Parker Ballistic Extreme. Chap Gleason
