How light of a load can i go?
Hello all ive been running around the net trying to get an answer and havent had any luck.
I do alot of squirrel and small game hunting and normally use my ruger 10/17 conversion, but sometimes i would like to go out with my muzzleloader for small critters just for fun.
I have a CVA Wolf .50 cal inline and a supply of 777, pyrodex,select and bh209 bp substitutes.
What i am trying to find out is what is the lightest load i can safely shoot? I would like to go lower than 50 gr. if possible preferably about 35 gr. by volume with a 180 - 200 gr .429 saboted bullet. Ive never tried patched balls that would be fine too if it would help to beable to use a lighter load.
How light can i go while still being safe?
