I decided to save up for a muzzleloader instead of an 870. I really need a ml more than any other gun. Last time I was at gander mountain I found 3 TC rifles I like: 1. Omega z5 - $380+tax 2. Bone collector - $600+tax 3. Pro hunter fx - $600+tax All three are 209 magnums. I like the latter 2 rifles because of the flextec stock. I am kinda recoil sensitive but my noise sensitivity problem is a little worse. I would like advice on slugs and would like to know what the bare minimum powder charge I could use to cleanly kill a Whitetail. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
