Unreal! I just read through this whole thread and I think you are a god. I got my first muzzle loader back in around 1986. It was a Thompson Center Hawkins. My wife gave it to me for Christmas in the kit form. I've been hooked ever since. I have three others now. Two of them purchased since Christmas. The next to the last a Tradition, then the CVA wolf. The Traditions shoots well, I just need to get the wolf shooting. It looks like I should get some Black Horn loose powder.
