I picked up some fff Triple 7 powder and got a chance to try out the old muzzleloader today for the first time.  I took three shots using just 60 grains and patched round ball.  At 50 yards with the primitive iron sights things are right on the money with a decent group considering these old eyes haven't shot much with open sights lately. Will spend more time with it later on to see how it does with a hunting loard in the 90-100 grain range.

I started out with a pretty soft load, but I'll admit that once I had a pretty good fix on my target I did turn away a bit as I squeezed it off.  This thing has a double set trigger - first time I've ever used one.  Not sure about that "click" when you're getting ready to take a shot at a deer but it does make for a nice trigger pull.  You can fire the gun without it but that pull is much higher of course.
