I've never owned one but something to consider is the very limited choice of projectiles, sabots or full bore conicals, that are offered for a .52 cal.

I looked into that, they make a bullet that is specifically made for the gun. And its a barnes. You only need 1 type of bullet to hunt with.

a couple of years ago the hype was long range .45. .50 was slow now there trying to say that a .52 is so much better than a .50 and .45 . use the same cal.'s out of identical rifles and i bet theres not a whole lot of difference. with the same load. but thats my opinion but i might be way off base.

Well my opinion is that the link you provided compares apples to oranges via a .52 to .50 rifle.

Further, the link you provided is from Toby Bridges. While a more accomplished shooter than me, he shoots a product for money. If he was truly interested in a "long range muzzleloader", he'd be shooting a Savage.....

Oh wait. He's been there and done that. Do a search on Toby and Savage. If you don't know the history - you will find the info more than entertaining.

FWIW - I've not shot the .52 cal Knight - but I think Kevin made a very valid point.

I'm not in the market for a smokeless gun. Ok take out the .52 cal equation what about a .50 in the exact same gun?
