Ad me to the "luv-em" side. I use a Savage Stainless with a thumbhole stock smoke-less. I have it sighted in dead on at 100 yards and hit about 3-4 inches low at 150. I know some think that its getting away from the flintlock type but I say to each his own. I love it. The smokeless cleans up in no time flat and it has ballistics close to some rifles.

I love my Omega. Very accurate. I even find myself using it during regular firearms season.

I like mine, like someone else mentioned earlier it is generally easier to work up a load that they like than going the shotgun/slug route. Besides I think I'm hooked on the smoke cloud after the shot. LOL

I'm addicted to them. I have 11 so far and I'm not quitting there. I shoot flintlock, caplock and inline with Swiss and Goex black powder. Have 3 centerfires for hunting but I don't use them much anymore. Guess I'm addicted too the smoke to LOL.

I use a TC Omega .50 and love it.
It shoots better than my slug shot gun and as good asa rifle.

I also have an old smooth bore Hawken that I haven't used in a few years. I may take it out this season.

NCHawkeye - I love the curly maple on those flinters. I want to build one like that for my next project.

I love my Knight in-line, I actually shoot better with the Muzzleloader to 100 yards verses my .270!!!
Go figure...[8D]

These are 5 caps that I shoot at a nice 6-pointer, the little buck must have been "hunter challenged" (politicaly correct) before he walked away.

So the moral of the story is, even the fancy new in-lines can suffer from sitting in a pouring rainstorm for two hours and misfire, dag-na-bit!

NH muzzleloading season is 10 days before rifle, so it gets us a little more time in the woods, with a little less hunting pressure.

The year later I connected with another 6 pointer (probably his younger brother).
I have a Leupold 2-7 mounted ontop
