I think that is the entire point. When you make the Fiddlestick legal, why not go all the way and then change the name of the season. I cant imagine why i would buy a "semi muzzleloading" rifle vs a single shot 45/70, 350 Legend or 450 Bushmaster for less. A CVA Hunter or even a Traditions Outfitter G3 can be had for under $400.

Probably a disadvantage as it uses a proprietary cartridge to go bang.

If you can’t find them in stock , out of luck

Compared to a regular muzzleloader which can use a variety of powder and bullets

Try again, Traditions IS Ardesa. Same company.


Not sure how that even remotely helps your point other than the Electra is long gone and forgotten. Just another straw you are pulling on to no avail. ANY smokeless rated rifle ive seen can use subs or real black. That is pretty obvious.

You have zero clue about what 888 is or is not. No one does atm beside IMR/Hodgdon and Federal. They just acquired Blackhorn209 so for all we know whatever was in the Fiddlestick may be something different soon....Got a SDS on the Fiddlestick?

Calling a rifle a rifle is not criticizing...its simply not a muzzleloader.....Loads powder from the breech so its not. Spin it all you want because its all you got. Lehigh has one too and im fond of Lehigh. I said the same thing to Tom and Dave.....Pull out another straw. Theirs even produces as good or better velocity from the data ive seen using a shorter barrel. Cost per Lehigh "fiddlestick"....about a buck each.

I'd say that it IS a muzzle loader because the bullet is still loaded from the muzzle. It's not going to be any faster to load because of that plastic cartridge compared to loading pellets from a speed loader.

Now I'll also say that it doesn't seem worth it to me unless you hunt in the rain most of the time. Also having an expendable item that is essential to fire a gun leaves the shooter very vulnerable to a manufacturer suddenly stopping production and leaving the gun owner with a useless paper weight. I got into the same situation with my NEF muzzle loader and the plastic primer carriers that they stopped selling years ago. Fortunately I anticipated it and bought about 75 of the carriers before the went out of production. With this Traditions gun though it's worse because you are buying a low volume production precharged cartridge rather than a simple injection molded primer carrier. $2 a shot for just powder is bad. I'll bet you could reload them pretty easy. Some kind of wad to hold the powder in is all you need. You'd lose the water proof feature but how often do you really need that anyhow?
