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!

oh and i think i can figure out the flintlock kinda haha. the inline really confuses me with powder pellets, balls or sabots, and the number 11 cap thing really has me confused.... not sure what the difference between that and a 209 is?

If your looking to clean a ML as little as possible, might as well toss it out the window now. One weapon that must be taken care of to function properly! Many people clean bore after EVERY shot!

thanks for the literature! and i plan on cleaning after every shot series, need to learn how still. and what tools i need. would like to not have to tear apart to clean but i don't think that's an option.

A ML really should be cleaned after each time you shoot it. Prepair to have your house smell for a while after as well
