Do any of u guys own and use the Traditions pellet rifle for late muzzle loading season? I was thinking of buying one this year, since I have the combination senior licence for Pa. Just wondering what u think of them. Thanks in advance, JimR
i hunt with a guy who has one and its not a bad gun if you just going to hunt and shoot it once in a while his doesnt like round ball he uses T/C cheap shot in it and they shoot well i understand that some guys just cant afford a custom or a better built factory gun
I have one. It functions perfectly using loose powder.(Goex)
Pellets are much harder to ignite so I would not consider using them in a flintlock. I will not use pellets in an inline either (Blackhorn only).
I know, I know but it's made for pellets..........I have never liked the pellets. I bought the gun for the bargain and the removable breech plug. It is very reliable, does everything I ask and with powerbelts it is a tackdriver.

They are a good value for the money.They habe a way better lock than the Deerhunter.I know guys usin pellets with no issues.F/locks of any brand or style take a correct way to maintain,load,and care for.Alot of people use different techniques and some of those techniques won,t work correctly.Go by the book or have a experienced person help you and you,ll be fine.I have used loose and pellets in my Firestorm and have never had a issue related to the powder or loading sequence.I also only shoot PRB,s and they do the job.Good luck.
Thanks for the info guys. I ordered one from Sportsmans Guide, the one with the stainless look barrel and camo. It was a pretty good deal 413.00 free shipping and a 4 payment deal. I really wanted to get a Thompson center Firestorm, but they stopped making it in 2012 according to one of their reps. It will be nice to get in an extra season, I just got a senior combo licence.
