Hello
My son bought a traditions tracker at the local rural king it is one of those blister pack bargains
 
So i'm trying to figure out what  powder and primers he can use in it and i'm also trying to find a set of scope mount blocks fit so he can put a scope on it
 
Any and all help is appreciated

Thanks
Joe

With that style gun use Pyrodex RS loose and saboted bullets in the 250-300gr range.    With RS start at 90grs and see what kind of results you get and go up from there in 5gr steps. I would stay away from 777 due to the crud ring.

Yep, RS or T7 will do the job. Its one of those plunger style guns which means its very messy, so a scope cover is a must to keep the primer from blasting the finish off the bottom.

With all that dirtiness, T7 may not leave that bad of a crud ring due to all the primer heat being lost. Never know until you give it a try though!

Even though it is a plunger type gun it might be capable of very good accuracy.

oh yeah without a doubt its capable of excellent accuracy, just messier to clean is all. Not a big deal, especially for the price they go for.

Sorry I never responded to you guy's posts 
Here is a update on this gun

I went and bought some pyrodex rs and hornady sst's in 250 grains like I shoot in my cva wolf and started shooting with 90 grains and worked up to 105 grains that is the sweet spot it likes 

He has shot 2 bottles of rs out of it and is very accurate with it out to 200 yards  and was pumped and ready for deer season we went out 1st season and got skunked then 2nd season and the last minute of the last day he got a button buck at 178 yards and happier than a fat kid in a candy store

I just have to get a scope cover of some kind because the blow back from the primer it eating the scope up

Great deal!  I remember some velcro strap deals they make for those open plunger guns, I will see if I can find them.
