    That’s awesome! The first 18 years I hunter with a muzzle loader I shot a 50 cal Hawken style rifle. Never shot anything but round ball and I have never felt more satisfaction than when I killed a deer with that rifle. Probably a dozen notches I’m the stock. One of these days I’m going to try to shoot one with it on my own 7 acre property.

    @Harold there’s just something about that black powder and white smoke! Good luck, Harold!
