PostSubject: Several questions regarding TC Renegade   August 5th 2014, 9:09 am

Currently using 90 gr of 2F 777 in my .50 TC Renegade behind 348 gr Power Belt bullet for deer hunting.   Need to buy powder soon. Questions:   Stay with 777 or switch to ?
If I stay with 777, should I switch to 3F?   If so, reduce the grains in charge?
Thanks in advance.

That's a lot of bullet for deer. You could easily kill elk with that load.

Are you having any ignition problems with T7? If not, just keep using it. I also have a Renegade, but I use real BP. I've tried Pyro in the past, and would get slow ignition now and then. Never tried T7.

me personally, I'd use Goex, swiss or olde eynsford black powder. It will greatly reduce the chances of a misfire or hang fire.

If you have a combo that works why mess around with it ?

Personally, I don't care for 777 .. not sure why. I guess I just prefer real black powder. However, if you are experiencing good groups and no problems, "stay with the one who brung ya."

I don't think my reason is good enough to change anything.

In all of my sidelock MZ's, both caplock and flint, I use black powder, the real thing. In the past tried different subs, but for reliable ignition you will not do better than real black.

If 777 works stay with it. I have never used any, because I use Pyrodex and it works for me,therefore I have stayed with it. That is were folks get into trouble with misfires and hangfires and the likes of things going wrong, when they change.
