Default knight tk2000 test results.

check out the results from my knight tk2000

total yardage and number of shot in a 30" cicle

25 yards 330

30 yards 328

40 yards 289

this is with 120 grains ffg goex black powder and 2 1/2 oz #4 knight red hot shot..
test results may vary due to powder and shot mfg.

not bad for a muzzleloader.

gobblerspur, did you have any problem with trying to put all that shot in the wad cup? I just checked to see how much #5 shot I could put in a knight cup, and it 's about 2.25 ounces. Let me know your reply!!

turkeyhunter1,

what make of shot did you use?. did you use different brand of shot.
i used 3 1/2 in. shot cup and knights #4 hot shot which is about 340 pellets.its tight and very close to 2 1/2 oz. i see some mix #4 and #6 shot together and had good results.i will try the # 5 knight hot shot and see what i can get in the shot wad.remember test results vary due to powder and shot manufacturer.did you have trouble finding knight products at local dealers. i had to order from knight for supplies.

Gobblerspur, I am shooting Knight #5 hot shot . I normally shot #4 shot, but the general concensus is that the #5 pattern's best. Now, I am shooting Triple 7 in FFFg form. It burns faster, plus it's easy to clean. You can get Knight products from BassPro. If not, try Cabela's. That's where I bought my Knight TK2000. It's cheaper going through these sources first. Knight will not under sell their dealers. Let me know if this helps!


Ps: Where do you hunt in western PA? I go to PA for the opening week!! I hunt not far from Bradford PA.

Tried my new knight 2000 out for the first time today. I only took 2 shots as I was all ready late to be where I had to go. I shot 100 grains pyrodex with a full 3 1/2 in. shot cup of No. 5s at 30 yards. I can only get about 280 #5s in a full level cup. Don't know the weight in ounces as I have no way to weight that at this time. Anyway, at 30 yards I put 206 pellets in a 18" circle with my first shot and 191 with my second shot. I satisfied.
