Default T/C Encore 12 guage muzzleloader loads

I've recently purchasd Thompsons Encore turkey gun. Being new to muzzleloading I'm looking for any info on loads, powder charge, amount of shot, etc. I'll be using #6 shot with T/C shot cups and triple 7 loose powder. Any advise or possibly a website address with info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I don't have any experiance with your gun in particular and am a little green at all this myself. But what I did with my T/C 12 gauge New Englander is Start with 60 grains of powder and 1 3/8 oz of 6 shot. I worked up my shot load until I was happy with the results wich is now 2 oz, and then I added more powder untill I got to 90 grains. I'm useing Kight shot and shot cups with Goex black powder. Hope this helps a little.

Hey Turkey Addict, thats basically what I did except I used some 7.5s that I had left over. The gun is awsome Patterned well with 80 grains of powder and 2 oz of #7.5 shot. I will shoot again this weekend with some #6 and #5 shot. Do you Know of anywhere to Buy shot cups and such in bulk? T/C sells them 12 at a time for like $10.00. Thanks for your input - Matt
