HELP. New to this and lost. got a ml. now what?
Well goofy me decided to get into muzzleloading. so this last week i did some trading and got an inline and a flintlock muzzleloaders. wow. what a totally different world. I've never even shot a ml before. i got an unfired knight lk 93 with camo synthetic thumbhole stock. its a 50 cal. came with vhs tape so i assume its older. all original and never fired. and i got a cva silver trophy hunter 3 flintlock. also 50 cal. black synthetic with stainless barrel. no scope on either. cva has been used but in good shape. now, i want to learn what i need for both and how to shoot them. learning what i need to buy will help tons. so, after reading a bunch of lingo I've realized that I'm lost. so I'll tell you what i want to achieve and you please tell me exactly what to buy.
i want the cheapest materials that will work properly.
i want to clean these as little as possible within reason.
i want loads that will efficiently kill deer.
i needtm know what powder, ball, and cap thingys i need for each. please be specific. the knight is a number 11 cap ignition, whatever that means.
can anyone please help a lost soul here? thanks so much!
