Default Smokepoling 101...updated 8/16/13

this is kind of a beginners guide to smokepoles. after you have the basics down its much easier to fine tune your setup.

only thing he really doesnt talk about is the advent of BH209 propellant because the article was before black horn

http://archives.petersenshunting.com...zleloaders-101

and another good read

http://www.chuckhawks.com/muzzleloading_basics.htm

good videos on the basics

is it for you or a kid? kids can use a rifle during primitive season. my guess is a handy rifle would be off limits for you.

My friend was thinking bout it, he's from Tenn. and they can use them in TN during muzzleloading, but I told him I didnt think he could in GA becuase its a metallic cartridge and not so much the caliber.

Don`t think so, because it loads from the breech.
