There are a variety of different types of muzzleloaders available, so get a lesson on which design may be best for you.
Muzzleloading Basics talks the variety of different types of muzzleloaders that are available on today’s market and which one may be right for your hunting and shooting needs.
From historical flintlocks to new in-line bolt operated and rifled muzzloading rifles, there is a pretty big choice. With a little bit of research there is likely one you’ll find that will suit your needs.
If you just want to extend your deer hunting season (with extra days available for muzzleloaders in many states) you may want the newest in-line. An in-line provides the challenge of one shot but with superior accuracy.
If you want a more traditional hunting experience, like our frontier ancestors, consider a flintlock. You will be hunting the way pre-revolutionary frontiersmen did around the time of the French and Indian war. Muzzleloading is another exciting shooting sport so take the opportunity to head down to Cabela’s and speak to one of their experts at the gun room. They will be happy to walk through the differences and match you with a muzzleloader right for your hunting and shooting needs.
