I know most here are die hard goex or swiss fans, but have any of you played with fffg, triple 7, in a 54 cal hawken and firehawk, behind some 400 grain, +- conicals.........I have to put somethin together here as im headin antelope huntin and thats what I can find. Thinkin of startin bout 80 grains.......pros cons, good idea bad idea, thoughts appreciated.
I like Goex & 777 most then RS Pyrodex.
80gr is my hunting load in my .50 TC Hawken(patch & ball).
I use 100gr(sometime 150gr) powder when I'm using 295gr Powerbelt bullets in my inline.
