It is not really a matter of what the difference is between one weapon or another. Like many other states have already done (i.e. MS), Tennessee would have to further define what a primitive weapons actaully is.

For instance, according to the state of MS, the definition of a primitive weapon includes " a rifles of an original design, replica, re-introduction or reproduction of a type produced prior to 1900." If the state of TN adopted this defintion, and the firearms you describe met this defintion, I would say you are good to go.

If the firearms meets this criteria, accuarcy and distance wouldn't necessarily matter. My point as it relates to accuracy is that a hunter has no accuracy advantage using a primitive style 45-70 as compared to modern in-line muzzleloaders.

just for your information, log onto the Shiloh Sharps forum and see what the guys out west are doing with a 1873 Shiloh Sharps, those guys can shoot circles around a modern in-line muzzleloader, not trying to argue, just providing information

I agree. Both primtive weapons, old muzzleloaders and the new in-line muzzleloader can be very accurate. I just would like to see TWRA consider the use of various primitive weapons during muzzloloader season. Thanks for sharing.

More accurate?? What kind of muzzleloader are you shooting head over to the guns and gunsmith forum, and check out the "im gonna call it good thread". No more accurate than todays MZ

You might should re-read and look at that post. If you think your m.l. will do better, bring it! ;\)
