Re: muzzleloaders

Lots of accurate flinters out there.

You can get one custom made, or can buy an old T/C Renegade or Hawkin.

Lyman is producing some of the best production flintlocks today

How much you wanna spend? Plus looking for a roundball or conical thrower?

Re: muzzleloaders

As far as caliber,I'd say the 40 but its not legal for deer.
If you are shooting RB's in a production gun,you aren't going to beat the Lyman Great Plains Rifle(1:66-60).
If you are going to use conicals,then the Lyman Great Plains Hunter(1:28).
Thompson Center(1:48 twist)with RB's give good hunting accuracy of about 1 1/2" groups at 50 yds.
Then you can go CUSTOM for over $1000.

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

Re: muzzleloaders

Glenn-----I would like to off you this---if you are will to spend $$ on a production gun doesnt it make sense to wait a tad bit longer and spend a few more $$ to have a builder build you a gun that will be a Cadillac----I wish I had this advise given to me so as to save the 400 plus spent on my Lyman. I did like my Lyman and still do however there is no comparrison between the two guns....A Rice, Getz, Ryal, Green Mountain barrel and a Siler or L and R lock
does make a BIG difference---Others here please chime in if you agree or disagree.

Re: muzzleloaders

These days, used T/C or Lyman or New Lyman for production guns. If you go custom or semi-custom, the skies the limit

Shhhhhhh...!!! Next you'll be tellin' him how well balanced those swamped barrels are and how nice it is to mount a stock with just the right cast-off.....you're giving away all the good secrets!!

The best guns go off with a rock in the lock....
