Posts like this make me sick! all it does show how truly selfish you are..."Keep everyone out of MY woods..only I and the way I do things is right" crowd.I'm not a fan of the cheatlines. I dont see plastic stocks, telescopic sights, stainless steel, and artificial powder furthering the Black Powder sports. The "modern" rifles are simply an excuse to get into another season, and make it hard for the guys that are using the traditional rifles. Ponder on some guy using good stalking skills to get within shooting range of a good buck when some other joker pops him from 200 yards out with his stainless steel, plastic stocked, cheatline, using smokeless powder.....It completely defies the logic of the season.
Its about only getting one shot. The difference between modern repeaters and muzzle loading is just that, ONE shot as opposed to 5 or more.The muzzleloading seasons were started by the traditional black powder shooters years ago to get a season apart from the regular seasons so that the traditional shooters did not have to compete with the center fire shooters. The inlines with the shotgun primers, smokeless powder, jacketed bullets, and scopes should be used in the regular season, not in the black powder muzzleloader season. I dont like bow hunting either. That's just what I prefer.
Yeah, i have tried the sabots in my Hawkin and it doesnt like them...well actually I dont like what it does...the recoil is INSANE! Whereas with the patched round balls its quite a bit less, and i think it achieves more accuracy. Now those sabots out of the Wolf the recoil is next to nothing and the accuracy is amazing. 90 gr pyrodex under 240 gr. JHP.I do cheat a little I use pyrodex instead of black power. I still shoot the .490 round lead balls, but they are getting hard to find. Every local store only has these jacketed sabots and I refuse to shoot them.
This is EXACTLY what posts like the one i commented on and what i am guessing by your comments, your attitude, achieves. DIVISION!!You about have to order them now. I laid in 500 last winter, so we are good for a while.
My state Muzzleloading Association is working hard on this, lobbying to try to get our muzzleloading season returned to black powder, traditional rifles, only, and are having limited success. The bowhunters dominate our hunting seasons, being allowed to hunt during the blackpowder season mid September until about the first of February. We cant hunt the rut, only the bowhunters get to do that. So, naturally, it divides the hunters. Most of the landowners here now, do not permit bowhunting. So, there is some rub going on.
