How many Pellets?

Can a .50 cal Knight inline, the style before newest, "revolution," safely shoot 150 grains of black powder? How does it affect accuracy?

im not sure about the older ones but the new will but my self,i dont think its needed,the 150 grs.the more pressure behind the bullet the more unstable it will be.i just dont see the point in it,but now thats just me.

Hello123 - I just recently bought a new, but older model, Knight disc rifle. It was only built to handle two pellets. There was a kit, though, that I also bought that allowed me to go up to three. The kit had a completely new bolt. The main visible difference was the size of the nipple the cap goes on. On the two-pellet bolt, it was tiny. The new bolt is much larger and takes shotgun primers. If I were you, I'd take it by a Knight dealer near you and let them tell you before you try to shoot it with 3 pellets.

Best,
Jon
