I've came full circle in the BP game. I started out with a sidehammer, went to a scoped inline, then have came back to the traditional sidehammer when I realized inlines had less challenge that sidehammers do. I still have a couple of scoped Knight inlines but, wish I could still hunt with my .54 TC Renegade I used to have. I'm currently looking for a replacement for it now. There's nothing wrong with a scoped inline shooting the latest/greatest sabot round, but there's nothing like hurling a huge chunk of pure lead at a deer. I've bowhunted and rifle hunted elk but never had the chance to muzzleload hunt for elk.

Default Well heck!

I did rondy's off and on for a few years. I won fourth place in 94 at the Raton Rendezvous and won a pretty cool knife. At the Ft. Collins Smoke Poler Shoot I won a 10, actually 11 gauge smoothbore shotgun/ Musket for placing second in a field of five... Ahem!

I just wish I could have had more folks to try BP shotgunning. As it was, I was the only one around that had one. Talk about having to lead birds...

I've always been on the traditional side of muzzle loading. The rifle I shoot 95% of the time right now is my .45 caliber Dickert Flintlock I built myself. I do like my flinters!

Short shooter, My wife shoots the Charles Dalay. And she is a good shot. She beats me sometimes and she don't even practice. We did our clubs Rondy on Memorial Day. Had a good time although it rained everyday. Split a 54cal on a hawk, put holes in both sides of the card. Went to Bells Fort Rondy down by the Royal Guordge Bridge. Good time again. Cut a card in half again with my 54cal. Into the 1800s' big time. We belong to the Colorado Springs Muzzle loaders. We have 2 shoots a month and I go to the range as much as I can.
Next year we plan on going to the Raton Rondy.

Shoot strait
