The only downside with them is they dont like in-line's. It's a very good site if you're into traditional BP shooting, looking into the history of the sport or want to get into the "rendevous"(pardon the spelling) and get-togethers.

Rock locks are the only way to go.
One fella at the range aske me if I wanted to try shooting his fancy scoped, inline gun. I said yes, but all I had were push pins and I didn't think they's be strong enough to hold it up on the target board
Try this site;

That is not a down side. If you want to discuss modern guns don't go to a muzzloading forum.

Well, the last time I checked, the in-lines were muzzle-loaders.
They used to have an in-line section, but many seemed to be rather "snobbish" about them..

I went over to that site and read some of their stuff. Lots of interesting info on ballistics of different bullets and such(at least those dealing with in-lines).
The "feeling" I get from this site is: Traditional PBR is fine for "shooting", but not for "hunting".
I own 2 percussion hawkens rifles and love to shoot them. I dont own/haven't shot an in-line rifle, but I have thought about getting one.
I really have no problem with the way my states hunting regs. are set up, and I don't believe that the current rules are discriminatory, either.
I tend to like this site as it is more middle of the road. HPmuzzleloading and muzzleloadingforum seem to be on the extreme end of the spectrum.

SGWAR15,
The PRB loads work ok in the larger cal ie 50 & 54 cal, but there are better bullets. The problem with the PRB is it loses engery very quickly. Those who hunt with the PRB just have to limit how far they shoot. There is some real good info on HPmuzzleloading and muzzlelonding forum. You are correct those guys are not middle of the road, and I try to use a little common sense with what they say on both sites. Doesn't anyone else out there have anything to post? Who shot a deer?

I cant agree with you more. I think using PRB, or even a good mini-ball requires the hunter to get in close, really not much different than bow hunting. I wouldn't try a shot past 50 yards with my bow, anymore than a shot past 100 yards with my ML. In fact, I would tend to get closer, to better my chances of a clean kill.

My "Hawken" .54 would work to 100 yards, but I won't go pasted 75, and prefer 50 or less.

I like to keep my bow shooting inside 25 yards, cause I'm too old to want to crawl around on my hands and knees looking for wounded animals. Get 'em in close, hit 'em in the right place and finding them is easier!! My Knight disc extreme shoots real well at 100 yards but I still like 'em closer if possible. My TC Hawken 54 cal is a real good shooter, but with iron sights I prefer to have them with in 50 yards. I live in a shotgun only county, and on my farm my stands are set up where you have to work at getting long shots. Normally shots are under 100 yds, and if I'm using iron sights, I just pick a deer stand that will offer closer shots. Trouble with old age is now I have to have special glasses just to see the front sight.
