Anyone shoot smokepoles?

I picked up a couple muzzleloaders because I think those are the only deer and elk tags I will be able to get, but I have actually had a ton of fun shooting these things at the range. I can't seem to find real black powder locally, so I have been shooting substitutes (mostly Black MZ). Cast my own conicals and round balls for a .50 TC Hawken and a .54 TC Grey Hawk (stainless New Englander). Looking forward to the muzzleloader season in September, but having lots of fun in the meantime. I actually just ordered some real black online to try it as well.

Ever since I was 20. I'm partial to 50 cal patched ball with about 70 grains of black. Very accurate in my TC New Englander
Retired at 59 in 2014. Should have done it sooner but I worried too much.
