Just because you have a plastic gun doesn't mean you have to shoot plastic bullets out of it. Try it, I think you will be surprised, pleasantly.
I couldn't agree more with you about the lead. I like to hit them hard !
I didn't buy a 50 cal. To shoot 45's through it

Is there no one using the Barnes 45/70 bullet with the orange sabot. I'm hearing great things about this pairing and would like to try it out.

295 grain Powerbelts work good for me along with three pellets of 777. The buck in my avatar was smoked at 80 yards on the 16th!

I shoot the 45/70 Barnes Original 300 Gr with the orange sabot. But I shoot it in Savage ML with smokeless Vihtavuori N120. They shoot great. I know. It's not really like using a muzzle loader but you asked.
