Ok a little background I have a nef huntsman muzzleloader and after doing some research I came across SMI and from what I was reading or trying to read cause my phone screen messes up every now and then that SMI could make me a barrel for a 50 cal smokeless and breech plug im thinking it read for 325 or so but have any of you all heard if that was possible I know some places say they can but only for guns that had a rifle barrel and not a muzzleloader barrel on it but since im just going to be replacing the barrel all together and not converting a barrel is it possible and the nef huntsman looks just like a single shot shotgun and whats the advantage if there's any from a 45 or 50 cal smokeless ok long question over ill sit back and listen to yalls advice or opinions

To address the nef issue, they make two different frames. Centerfire frames and shotgun/muzzleloader frames. The shotgun rated frame is not strong enough for a smokeless build.

If you want to stick with nef, it would probably be easier and cheaper to get a 45/70 rifle and have them (or slufoot) install a breach plug.
Other options to covert include cva apex, Thomson center, h&r ultra Hunter, and other single shot 45/70 rifles.
