I know how that goes! I must have shot 250 rds with my Triumph and couldn't get a 5 ft group! I tried TC bullets and sabots, 452 bullets 429,bullets every hting I could find. went from 50 to 120 grains of powder, tried T7, reg Pyrodex, real ffg Black, just fought for 2 yrs! And to make it worse my buddy's, just 5 digits different ser# shot first thing he tried !' groups at 100:(
Then last month I bought a 230gr rn mold fro the 45's. Fits in my sabots, and with 90 grains 3 rounds touch each other at 50. I am thrilled!
So there will be a sweet load just keep trying!

you need to listen and just slow down. Take a step back and let the info we're giving you time to settle and sink in.

Your load of Two 50gr T7 pellets is a good load, The 245gr Powerbelts shoot great in our Accura's.

Primers: A primer to hot can cause erratic groups. With T7 you need a cooler primer like the Winchester 777 or Winchester W209.

Bore condition: With T7 you MUST clean you barrel out after each shot.

This was the first time this kid ever shot a muzzle loader and he did it at 100 yards.

Been there done that myself with my Accura. I saw the biggest improvent in accuracy when I went to loose powder, which you have done, kept my powder loads in the 80-90g range. What tied it all together for me was the switch to Winchester 777 Primer. I too was using the CCI primers. Now mine will shoot 1.5" groups @ 100yds from a bench if I do my part.
