Barnes - PA did give modern muzzleloader shooter their own season in October. And your statement about the traditional ML shooters hating in-line shooters is false. Maybe there is a small group that are like that but not the majority. I have both in-lines and sidelocks. Yeah , I would love to use one of my percussion sidelocks during the late season but it is not permitted. I like shooting all type of MLs but I don't mind being limited by season restrictions. So I use the caplocks in the early ML season or during regular rifle season. So doing what I want while still following the rules.

I have to beg to differ. True traditionalists can't stand in-line rifles. They want no part of modern in-line shooting or hunting and you'll find them saying, "Nothing primitive or muzzleloader about them. May as well be shooting a centerfire!"

Now I will say this, myself like you, own and shoot both. My latest little pet is a .36 Seneca I picked up this summer. However, when it comes to the true traditionalist vs in-line shooters, we're (you and I) are in the minority. See, you and I, along with a few other dedicated muzzleloader shooters, have put our prejudices for one or the other aside. Its extremely hard for the traditional, rather the flint shooter, to ever put his/her prejudices aside.

I'm pretty confident about this. So much so, that I believe it can actually proved next spring or summer. Join me where a huge number of traditionalists and flint shooters gather in the spring and fall. Lets ask the question....

Gotta agree with Barnes on this one Clem. Back in the dark ages when I was really serious about MLers (pre inline popularity) the flintlock folks would begrudge those of us using cappers! Now, if they were prejudiced enough to begrudge a side lock percussion, how do you think they feel about inlines?

OK - I see your point. I feel to that today's modern in-line MLs aren't much less than a single shot centerfire rifle. The accuracy and range of them was unimaginable 25 or so years ago.
While I have no grudge against anyone using them, there is something to be said about using a flintlock and a PRB and having to "get in close" (closer than a modern scoped in-line) that provides an additional challenge.
