The New ******* Muzzleloader

Back 20 years ago when I went hunting with a muzzleloader you had to pour the powder down the barrel, then stuff the primer, then jab a ball down the barrel. If you were lucky the cap would ignite the powder pretty soon after you pulled the trigger. I just got a new ******* muzzleloader. I found out we can use a .35 Whelen and call it a primitive weapon. As bad a shot as I am it is pretty easy to group 3 consecutive shots in a 2" circle at 100 yards. I love my new primitive weapon!

I had a friend at work that said he shot the .35 whelen and it kicked so hard he put that barel on e-bay. I shot 8 rounds through it today and it didn't seem any worse than my 30-06.
I don't know but I hope there is no change to this regulation after what I paid for this gun. As hard is it is to find ammo I must not be the only one in the area to be using a .35 whelen.
I'm not sure if I will shoot anything else around here now. Very seldom would I need to shoot over 200 yrds and the bullet has no drop at 200. I love the short 24 in barrell especially in the shooting house. Haven't had a shot at a deer yet but so far I love it.
