Go with a traditional muzzleloader. They're more fun & no disadvantage at all. That gun I'm holding in the pic has also been my turkey gun for many years. It has been the demise of many turkeys.....never had one get away after I squeezed the trigger.
As soon as I can afford one, I plan to get a flint smoothbore to replace that percussion gun.
something to look into. I haven't use black powder for a few years now or even a muzzle loader for a couple, I stick with the bow. last time i did use the front stuffer i used my savage ml with smokeless powder. much easier to clean. i'll look into the traditional shotgun.
