    One thought, talk to a expierenced gun builder and have another Colerain barrel installed. Keep your choked barrel for shot, swap it out for round ball. BJH

    Shooting with:
    80 Gr 3f Swiss
    20 cal 1/4 “ Felt Wad
    11/8 Oz # 71/2 shot
    Tow over powder

    Great pattern at 35 yds. No large open areas, good cover.
    So, next year I’ll get a 40 cal.

    I know several who have choked smoothbore muzzleloaders.. including me, and they regularly shoot round ball.
    I haven't tried it yet, but i have a 10 bore full choke i wanna try it on.
    Many buy a cylinder bore then send them to be jug choked, you won't have to.
    I bend the "corner" of my wads to get them in the bore, then down they go.

    Good luck.

    Ps, Nimrod is old nickname for hunter.
    My dad bought Nimrod ammo when i was a kid
