    A lot of it is going to depend on where you are going to be hunting with it. In a number of states you can only hunt with loose powder and no sabots. I'm not aware of California's black powder regulations but you might want to check that out before you start to decide on a load.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    BH209 / Thor combo not only works....but works well in finicky ML.

    For your awareness.....the specifications over all on gun manufacturers have expanded tolerance so much that the correct size and fit of things is critical. Specifically in ML barrel diameters. Thats why Thor works so well and is successful. Actually is the correct size for the barrel. Just my 2 sense. I've saved a lot of guys who were going to throw away their ML, used that combo (or pellets) and now trust and love their weapon (most with elk down/open sights)

    Get a scope and run a sabot. I personally like Hornady and barnes around 300 grain and can get them to shoot really well with Bh209 or triple 7. Now that you can run a scope in Utah, look at Nikon, Leupold, etc with the bdc reticle for muzzys.

    I finally found the load for my tc pro hunter. 100 grains bh 209 and 250 hornady sst low drag. Half inch at 50. One and a half inch at 100. By far the best muzzy group ive had.

    If you're talking about with open sights, that's an exceptional group! That's good even with a scope... I'm happy with anything less than a 4" group at 100 yds. Will accept anything less than 6". I don't shoot much farther than 100 yds though. Wouldn't even consider shooting at something over 150 yds.
