First inline I bought is a Traditions 45 cal. First deer I kiled with it I was using 250 gr. Powerbelt bullet with three 50 gr. Pyrodex pellets. The bullet really fragmented when it hit the deer. I got tired of the recoil from the 150 gr. of powder and switched to TC Powershock sabots in 250 gr. with 100 gr. Pyrodex. I did shoot both of my 50s yesterday with 100 gr. Blackthorn 209 and the 295 gr. Powerbelt, The Persuit put two bullets in a one inch circle, the Omega was near the bulls eye but moved around. I checked it out today and I think the scope mount was loose. Will try ro shoot again maybe tomorrow or Friday. I don't swab between shots. h
I always swab between shots...but I do not use the Blackhorn 209 which is suppose to allow you to get away without swabbing the barrel as frequently. Have heard good things about it. With Triple 7 or WhiteHots you can get away with two shots but after that the build up can be an issue.
