Well it looks like we drew a LE Muzzy Deer tag. Picked up a new Remington Ultimate Muzzleloader a couple years ago and have never shot it. Any one on here have any experience with them? What loads have shot well for you? TIA

I've had mine a few years and love it.
I shoot those 250 gr Barnes they come with but I did reduce the recommended charge of 200 grains of triple 7 to 180 grains of triple seven.
Its dumped 4 animals where they stood furthest being 230 yards

Lots of shoulder pain if you load it to what it's engineered for.

Friendly reminder that you don't need 200gr of powder to get a big slow moving projectile through an animal. I put a 290gr bullet clean through a bull at 134 yds and it passed right through destroying the lungs with a measly 100 gr of powder. My shoulder doesn't love that load.
If you want to shoot 200 yards with a muzzleloader, I suggest practice over relying on the 'ballistic superiority' of a load moving faster. If you are afraid to shoot at the range, or develop a flinch when you do, you run the risk of missing that shot of a lifetime.

Congrats on the tag. You're in for one awesome summer scouting and shooting and I hope it's everything you've been dreaming it will be.

Don't forget the wind on the longer shots

Yeah, I have killed two elk with my current set up. I just figured it might be nice to have a little more distance if the right shot opportunity presents itself. You are exactly right thoug, I didn't think about the increased recoil with that hotter load.
