I'm thinking about getting a muzzleloader for my dad to use in the pa early muzzleloader season. He's 76 but moves around pretty well. I have no experience with modern guns muzzleloaders but I have some experience with flintlocks. My dad has shots up to about 150 yards in his farm fields so the gun needs to be able to get out to that range. I also would like to have a tc encore rifle in .357 so if I could get a muzzleloader and a .357 all in one frame that would be great. I would also be interested in a way to cheat in archery and get some of the pesky does that eat my apple trees in the winter. If I had to do get a slightly better gun than a muzzleloader on an encore frame I would be ok with that. Let me know what I need. I see Thompson center omegas, and black diamond xr's for sale locally. What caliber and make do I want.
