    My dream muzzle loader is a Jeff Hankins Smokeless conversion.........to me that is state of the art....powerful and very accurate.

    I'm not really a cowboy but I still want to be one when I grow up.

    Feels like a shotgun to me.

    Well, it's a "half muzzleloader" since the bullet is loaded from the muzzle (but not the powder). Waterproof would be an advantage, but one cannot vary the powder charge. I've killed deer with traditional percussions and a flintlock. With the inline I use for deer, where most people would use powder pellets, I'm still loading with loose powder in my inline because I can vary the charge and not just shoot 50, 100, or 150 grains.

    On another forum they said the cartridge and bullet would come to about $4.50 + primer per shot. Doubt many will carry those cartridges unprimed either.

    People say money can't buy happiness But it can buy me a Marlin and ammo to shoot in it, dies, powder bullets...

    I did a little more research about the powder.
    It seems Hodgdon has a new propellant they've named Triple 8, but that's all the info I could find on it.
