I have one and really like it, I topped it with a leupold vx11, It is by far the easiest muzzleloader to clean it's also very comfortable feeling and shoulders really nice.

What powder and what grain are you using in it? What sabot or bullet size are you using in it too? Kinda new to it and I'm using a new T/C encore endeavor and I would think they are fairly close.

I own a TC Encore 50 cal and a TC Triumph..........I prefer the Triumph!!!
It feels better in my hand and it is super easy to clean......and it shoots great.

Try different loads. Don't get caught up in the "MAGNUM" deal. My younguns Omega will not shoot worth a piss with three 50gr Pellets. Use 2 and it's fine. I can't remember the name of the bullets, but we're using the ones with the plastic cup made to the bottom. They've proven more accurate in our rifles than any of the Saboted ones. Far easier to get down the barrel also.

Have been saying for awhile now that I was going to treat myself to an new muzzleloader boefore the season but might not happen now that the wife has put me on an tight spending budget. Looks as if I'll just have to hide some money away and sneak it into the house at some point this fall.

I'm shooting a encore pro hunter and use the TC. 250 shockwave super glide sabots they load very easy and shoot the best of anything i've tried. I use three triple 7, 50grain pellets and get great groups but you should work up a load that shoots best in your gun they are all a little differint.

I use 240 grain bullet called Dead Centers and use 120 grains of triple 7 loose powder

here's a link to the bullets

I own and love my Triumph. Its a sweet gun and super easy to clean. I have it topped off with a Nikon Omega muzzleloader scope.

I shoot a T/C omega with 2 - 50 gr. pellets of American Pioneer Powder and a 300 gr Hornady bullet. I'll be putting a Nikon Omega scope on it later this year. Right now off a bench @ 100 yds I can occasionally touch holes together.
