Default Small Bores

What is out there for a decent but cheap small bore rifle (32cal, 36cal, or 40cal)? I think GM used to make a 40cal barrel for my Renegade. Do they still make these?

Any other suggestions? Does not need to be fancy. Just something to have some fun with.


Thanks



Kirk

I think some of them calibers are still offered. Give Green Mountain Barrel a call. Or look at TOTW and some of the other gun sights.

If you have never had any experience with small bore muzzleloaders then you need to under stand that the reason they are not more popular is because of how fast a small bore crudup. Plan on swabbing out the barrel good every shot. Lee
