anyone use them? trying to decide if i want to invest in one or not.
I have used them in the past. Up here, muzzle loader season adds several weeks to the deer season. Between archery, muzzle loader and regular season, we have a pretty long season.
pretty much the same here. still not sure if i wnt one or not
Muzzle loaders are ok, but there is a good reason they are not widely used these days except for hunting.
I started shooting muzzle loaders about 1968. It was a lot of fun before technology changed the darn things. I liked the true primitive in the sport, We cast all of our mini-balls, made our powder measures and bullet starters.. now their basically modern weapons although you can still get the bare bones Kentucy rifle.
Yeah that too....there are some manufacturers out there that still have the basic muzzle loader. For me, the nylon stocks, telescopic sights, etc. detracted from the whole thing.
Yes, and I hear the powder now is pretty smokeless, I'm not sure about that though but all that smoke was half the fun!
They still get fouled pretty good if your not careful...
I'm surprised, I would think the newer powder would have taken care of that.
ive been noticing that with the sites ive been to. seems pretty much modern cept how the round is put in. seems like i might stay with shotguns.
