    Does anyone have a good load for a Thompson Center? They tend to have tight barrels. I recently bought an "Impact" and need a good load for elk. I am presently trying Barnes T-EZ 290 gr. sabots and 120 grains of Blackhorn 209. This has not been too accurate so far. I may back off on the powder.

    This is for a .50 T/C Impact ML. It has a fixed barrel.

    You can spend a lot of time searching for which loads and bullets your ML likes the best. I stick with sabot rounds, usually pick one out and try various powder loads with them to see what results I have and then try a different bullet. Not a big fan of the powerbelt ones though, with a sabot you can at least change it to a thicker or thinner one to "adjust".
