Does anyone know a good load for a Knight TK2000 muzzleloading shotgun? I think I am going to bring it out this year and try to bust a big ole gobbler with it.

I shoot 100 grains of Pyrodex with the shotcup full of #4's. I've killed 3 gobblers with mine. I didn't use it last year, because I bought a new shotgun.

What kind of pattern do you get with that kind of setup, and are you using a 3" shot cup or a 3 1/2"?

The shotcup is a 3 1/2". It patterns well at 20-25 yards. Obviously the 30 yard pattern does not look as good, but 4's don't pattern well, they have the knockdown.

The turkeys I've killed have been at 30 yards or less. Had a mishap with it in 2006 due to operator error. I didn't let it dry out good before leaving for a hunt in Kansas, so when the three big gobblers got in range, the cap went off, but the powder was wet. My buddy killed his gobbler, actually got it on video, not great footage, but good enough.

I use 100 gr of 777 powder and 140 gr of #5 shot, Throws a phenomenal pattern out to 40 yards. At 20 yards I could just about take their head off! I just got the gun last year and haven't had a chance to prove it yet! It is an older model withthe #11 cap but I don't plan on changing a thing on it.

Thanks guys for the information, I will have to try these out.

Bawana, is that 140 grains of #5s or 140 grams of #5s, and how many oz. does that translate to?

It's 140 grains as measured in the powder measure loader. I started at 100 grains each and worked my way up to 140 and loved the results! If I can find one of the targets I used I'll take a pic and post it. I use the powder measure because that's how I'll reload in the field. I've got two, One set at 100 for the powder and the other at 70, which I load twice for the shot.
