Modern Muzzleloader Comparison


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Looking for accuracy in a modern muzzleloader. Remington has always performed well for me, and their inline ML should have an outstanding trigger. T/C Omega looks like a snap to clean, but I question its hammer-type trigger. Any experience with either out there?

Thanks

CC, I had the opportunity to use both these muzzleloader's last season.I must say I am a Remington diehard fan. I was really dissapointed in the 700 ML. Takes awhile to take down to clean. Trigger was very good, but I had alot of problem with the bolt and firing pin. Even freshly cleaned there was a noticable delay from trigger pull to ignition, caused my personel accuracy to be off sometimes.Firing pin hits primer and makes primer swell so much that I had to dig primer off nipple each time.Hard to get into to put new primer in also.Switched to the TC Omega after my father filled his tag.What a difference. Better trigger. Hammer falls perfectly. No lag time on ignition. Primer just pops out with a quick flick of the finger or a tap on stock. New primer slips in easily( best when it's -30 windchilland fingers are froze). Also just like the commercial shows the TC Omega shooter is finished cleaning bofore the 700 ML is tore down and ready to start cleaning.( the triple 7 powder was used in both so just water was used for cleaning the bore/breech plug)
Both ML's shot very accurate, repeatable groups. Remembering I am a remington Fan, I have chosen to trade my 700 ML for the TC Omega.Just a all around Better Package. This is only my opinion. Ron

Just want u to know my remington 700 ML shoots like a house afire with everything but sabots. Put on Remington musket nipple and is much easier to put caps on and take off with my old fingers. Gives me instant ignition with triple seven up to 150 grain loads. Is slower to take apart and clean, but, with the triple seven it cleans up real easy. Love mine over several hammer guns and one other inline I have owned.

Thanks for the reply. A buddy converted his to the 209 primer and it has worked flawlessly for him. We shot it 12 times prior to clening - I think the 777 pellets helped. accuracy was excellent. As you inferred, both are great guns but the Omega does seem simpler to clean. Thanks again, Kerry

CCAguns -

Got a Rem 700ML .50 cal in stainless a few years back, shortly after they came out. Love it!

It much prefers conicals over round ball at higher belocity, as the round balls tend to "strip" the rifling if I use more than 70g Pyrodex or 777.

110g 777 and Thompson Maxi's are a great combo.
