Re: Looking to learn about muzzleloading

you could proably find everything you need to know here and other places online, save you the cost of a book, just google, "all I need to know to get started in muzzleloading", or something like that, good luck!

Re: Looking to learn about muzzleloading

also you may want to specify flintlock, caplock or inline muzzleloader.

Re: Looking to learn about muzzleloading

I bought a book years ago by SamFadala "Complete Black Powder Handbook" that I really liked

I forget what edition it is. He has some newer ones out now that talk about in-lines I don't know about those books. But the one I have is really good for a beginner. It may be the 4th ed.

A good video was by Dave Ehrig called "Blackpowder Whitetails"

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: Looking to learn about muzzleloading

Go to the web site for the National Muzzleloading Rifle Assn. They do have a beginner introduction brochure that is down loadable.

Re: Looking to learn about muzzleloading

muzzleloadingforum.com is a good web site for blackpowder questions. They don't do inlines though....

Dave Ehrig`s book "Muzzleloading for Deer & Turkey" is a great book. Lots of good info.
