Default Breaking out the TC 54

I'm getting my TC 54 Cal out of the gun cabinet to hunt with next month.
I haven't shot it in 5 years and haven't kept up withthe newest technology with ammo or powder.
Can I get some suggestions on what I might want to shoot thru it?

90 grains of Pyrodex RS and a patched roundball is the first thing I would try out of it. Make sure you give the rifle a good cleaning first.

Yup! That's good advice. The Lee real bullets also shoot excellent out of my Grey Hawk 54.

The 300 grain REAL with 80 grains of Goex 2f shoot excellent out of my Renegade 54. They really do a number on a deer too.
