We shot each rifle, one at a time, and were not in a hurry, so I would imagine probably 4 or 5 minutes between loadings.
4-5 minutes, that's interesting. Some of the other muzzleloader forums recommend 15 minutes (when using sabots). I just ordered a hand held IR digital thermometer so I'll actually be able to check the barrel temp before shooting and see how long it takes to return back to that same temp. I'll probably wind up using a cooling rod anyway to speed things up. Thanks.
