Traditions makes a fine and dependable muzzleloader, accurate beyond your needs IMO. The PA Pellet needed some lock tuning, which is normal, but the caplocks should be fine without a lot of tweaking. I would look into the Traditions, and my second choice, still a good one, is CVA, on entry level guns.

Good luck. Hoping this was a help.

T/C Impact or look for a used Omega or Triumph. They don't get shot that much and the bore is easy to check.

Here's my advice on in-lines:

I have a T\C Encore with a 50 cal barrel. After trying many load\powder\bullet combo's including MMP sabots, T\C sabots with 44 cal bullets, MMP's with Nosler .458 Ballistic Silvertips, and trying many different bullet's what worked the best:

The best in my rifle with .458 Hornady 325gr gummy tips....100gr Blackhorn 209 powder.

My hunting buddy has a Traditions in-line and we found that the Nosler .458 Ballistic Silvertip and 100gr. Blackhorn 209 is wicked accurate in his.

My point is I dunno if you can make a "bad" choice of in-lines. But load development and testing is going to be key in your rifles maximum accuracy.

I hope this helps!!

Did you make a decision/purchase?
Season starts in 4 days, hoping you've found one and done some shooting to get familiar and dialed in.

remember if your going out early season you have a muzzle loading stamp, Why not get a flint lock then you have a 2 season weapon.

Why not buy both. This state is backwards and this is one of the things that is upside down. Don’t get me wrong I like my flint lock . Front stuffer maybe a fowler

I consider the CVA Accura MR a lower cost high value for an In-Line. I like the Encore but I wouldn’t say it’s a budget gun. If it wasn’t hunting season they can be bought used at a good price. I don’t remember what I paid for the MR but think 450 ish. It’s actually been more accurate than the encore and doesn’t seem picky on loads or I just got lucky the first load I tried.

I would look for something with a decent trigger and a speed breech plug. I’ve had some that required a tool and even bolt action In-Lines. I really prefer the hand removable plugs.

If you do decide on an MR I’d avoid the Cerakote models and look for a nitride. I think after the first year all were nitride finish.
