What a great day! Taking the muzzleloaders back out, then an afternoon of kayaking. I attached a TC 1.5-4x scope to the Omega. I'm going to sight in with TC 250gr shockwaves that came with the rifle. They are yellow sabots, so I'm assuming they are the easy glides. I hope they go down easier than the mag expresses I have.
I have a TC Hawken .50 and my inline is a TC Omega. I would like to get a flint lock at some point. If I do, I think I will look into fowlers.

Unfortunately, it had been converted to percussion at one point, and the lock and trigger mechanisms are now missing. I have it locked away, but the next time I clean it I'll post a couple photos.

You can even put a small ammount on the sabots prior to loading and they will load like butter. Also, if you are going to stick with the shockwave bullets, make sure you buy the ones with the 3 petal sabots rather than the 2 petal. The 3 petal sabots load MUCH easier even without lube.
To “GRUNT” or Not to “GRUNT” that is the question. Like all things pertaining to whitetail deer all hunters have their own way of hunting them. As a Call Maker of course I want everybody to own one and buy one from me, as a Guide I just want you to have one to up your chances of stopping that big old whitetail. I know that lots of you would think that this is a tool you wouldn’t even think about going into the woods without.One year at my lodge we had 12 hunters show up and I asked them if they...
