My buddy just won one of these last week. 50 cal. Any of you have an idea where would be a good starting point?
We are taking it out on monday and we have 250 and 300 gr shockwaves, 320 REALs, 300 gr .429" XTPs with sabots, and the bullets that it came with, look like 240 gr XTPs.
Probably try GoexFFg and Pyrodex RS.
I know my buddy will want to go right to 100 grs but I would like to start at 80 gr first and work up.
What do you all think - and what works best in the ones you've shot?

Wow, with that bullet and sabot assortment you guys have a full day ahead of you. I'm with you as far as starting loads go. I'dstick with one bullet and start at 80 grains and work your way up to 110 grains or so with three (preferably 5) shot groups. Then do the same with another bullet. I'm sure you know the importance of keeping notes on each load, or keeping the targets with all of the load info marked on them.

As far as the 320 REALs, I'd start at 70 grains and stop at 100.

The LT version is the lightest stock in that lineup I would start with that low load to see how the recoil is or get a pad.I don't think they sold that many as they came out with the extreme lineup that had the recoil pad built into the stock. I shoot Traditions guns and they are great but i did not buy that model when they came out because when I held it, it was too light for me.
