what's a good entry level muzzleloader? Something that is reliable, accurate and won't break the bank.

I shoot a T/C Omega but I picked up a Traditions Pursuit Pro XLT (I may not have spelled the right) for a buddy in GA last year. It shoots just as good for less --- tears holes @ 65yds.

fwsteal, i would go with .50 caliber, lots more bullet choices. i would also look into the CVA Optima as far as rifles go. break action, easy to clean, and wont break the bank. DEER ASSASSIN will testify to this also..

I've got an older one just like the Buckhorn (who knows what it was called 6 years ago) and it does great. The only thing I don't like about it, and it may make me buy a new one next year, is that cleaning is a PITA due to having to break it completely down to clean.

With so many new break-type actions available, if I was in the market now I'd pay a few extra dollars for one of them and save time in the long run.

I looked into the NEF Sidekick a couple of years ago and was pretty impressed at what you got for the money. I wasn't a big fan of the "break-down ramrod" but other than that, I was prepared to buy one until I got a sweet deal on a used Knight I couldn't pass up!

Good Luck!

Bass Pro has the Knight Wolverine 209 kit on sale this week for $199. Would make for a great first rig. I'm still using the old Knight MK-85.
