Get stainless whatever you decide. The price diff is worth it for the durability in my opinion.
If the government wants my guns, I will give them the bullets first.

Go with stainless, and TC can't be beat on customer service.

Get the savage smokeless with accutrigger! You will save yourself ALOT of headache ( very little cleaning involved, the frequency of cleaning is NOWHERE near what it is with blackpowder. The TC Encore and omega are also great muzzleloaders, but they both require alot of cleaning.
To one with faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.

As u can tell by my call name or user name I'm an Encore fan. I have a total of 5. They are great rifles and MLs and they do have great customer service.

Do not get me wrong on my following statement:

I'm a person that wants more out of my firearm than just and average or exceptable limits. Like my first which was a Encore ML. I have shot over a number of years and I have tweaked it to death (that is what I like to do). To get what I've achieved from my ML I have put a lot of time, money, not to mention blood, sweat, and attitude into a friggin ML. By the way, this is not what I set out to do, it became an obsession because I loved or feel in love with single action firearms.

FYI: But I would purchase the one that you want or fill comfortable with and do not settle for less because like anything else you will not be happy with it, if you don't.

Just my opinion.
Sticks and stones may break my bones but I promise that I will hurt you.

Gotta love the TC products. I have a SS Encore myself and it was the first ML I purchased. I knew I woukld like ML hunting so decided not to go with the cheapest one I could find. I don't trade guns so when I buy one I'm going to have it for a long time, that's why I chose the Encore.

If you want an entry level mz, then the Knight Wolverine is fantastic for about $200.

The Encore is another great choice, but kry226 gave some great advice also.

I would pick what feels good to you in your price range.

I, too, have the Savage and would not trade it for anything. I have also owned a couple Knights and one Remington - if any of that matters. I have shot them all (including the Encore) and that is how my opinion is formed.

Good luck. I always remember the saying: "You get what you pay for".

It works with muzzleloaders too.
