With the THOR bullet first you have to size your barrel, get the correct bullet for your barrel, and than work up a load with the powder.
That being said, l agree they are not the most accurate bullet, but than with my eyes and iron sights that you have to use in Colorado they were good enough. l had no trouble getting a 3" group at 100 yards
THOR bullets are made by Barnes bullets, it's designed to shoot without a sabot is the difference. If we could use sabot bullets in Colorado l would use them.


You have to use iron sights on muzzleloader in Colorado?

Colorado is open iron or peep sights, loose powder (no pellets) and projectiles have to be one piece (no sabots).

That bullet did well. Back 40 years ago when I used a flintlock, we used patched round balls (.454") or minnie balls. How times have changed.
Some like cologne, I like the smell of gunpowder.

I didn't have a flintlock but had the cap and ball. Used a .490 with l think a lubed .015 patch. Took a few whitetail with that rifle and one mule deer. Still have the rifle
