TC Triumph, anyone shoot one?

Postby TopWop » Sun Apr 07, 2013 3:40 pm

Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I'm going
to give the in-line muzzle loader a try. I have been
looking at a lot of different ones and I want the Triumph.
Actually I want the Bone Collector but I'm getting a brand
new Triumph for near nothing.

It's a done deal, I've made up my mind. What I was looking for
was some insight from people that have shot this or the
Bone Collector. I have heard that it's finicky with primers.
I can't use Sabots for hunting in MT. Any suggestions on
the next best thing. Just looking to save a couple bucks
instead of investing in a lot of stuff I'll only partially use.

What I'm not interested in is, whatever brand of Muzzleloader
you have or like or think is better. I don't care, start your own
thread on how great YOUR ML is. I do thank in advance those
with some first hand knowledge that are kind enough to share.

I thought you were posting about an open top European sports car from the 50's. I loved mine, and I hope you enjoy yours as much.

Dammitt, now I'm confused. Were you talking
about the gun or the car? BTW I always wanted
a TR-7 when I was a kid.

Since I'm only familiar with old timey muzzle loaders,
and sabots aren't legal in Montana. Can anyone suggest
a bullet (grain, style) and pellet combo to start with?

Thanks again

Top, I hunt with a TC Renegade in.54 Cal and have killed deer and elk with a round ball. I have also used a Minie' in appropriate diameter. The old stuff really works just the same as it did in the "olden days" with the same yardage restrictions. Just think of your muzzle stuffer as a bow that goes bang.

I had to go check my loads for the .54. Most accurate to 50 yards, not for hunting larger game, 55gr FF .530 patched round ball.
Hunting deer same ball 90gr FF, and elk 110gr FF. The grains are in black power (loose) by volume. I can't help with pelletized power, would like to try some some day when my supply of Goex runs out. Hope this helps.
