Something new and interesting . . .
« on: November 24, 2012, 01:58:22 PM »
Apparently some former employees of T/C got together and formed a new company.  Their first offering is an inline muzzleloading rifle with enough new ideas to really make it stand out from the pack.  This is a pretty good looking rifle and the price is not over the top either.  They are apparently going to ship startiung in January.  Check it out at www.lhrsportingarms.com  or  http://lhrsportingarms.com/index.html

Muzzle loaders are not my thing, but that does look awful pretty.  :woot

Never had any experience with muzzleloaders. Been thinking about checking one out. Looks pretty slick to me.

I've never been exposed to muzzleloaders - it would be an interesting angle to pursue at some point, but I currently don't have enough time to fully enjoy the modern firearms I have.  Hopefully some day I'll get a chance to explore muzzleloaders.  That is a beauty though.

I have a muzzleloader revolver. No rifles  yet but my good friend has one that I have shot a few times. With the new advances in muzzleloaders it almost like a modern rifle. Cap, powder pellets, and a sabots make them shoot very tight groups

I don't have any in-line muzzleloaders but I'm a traditional muzzleloader NUT!!! I have several flintlock and cap-n-ball rifles as well as handguns. I have taken several deer with my Pedersoli (Cabelas) Blue Ridge Flintlock. They are awsome and cheap to shoot. You can spend 4 hours at the range and still only go through 50 round but have a blast doing it.

I love black powder. Yes it is cheap only due to lack of volume. The clean up holds me back from taking my BP revolver out more then once a year. Still thinking about a in-line though.

Try alcohol for clean up it really speeds up the process. I also make my own balls from waste lead and even have made my own powder.

Those of you who haven't tried BP are missing out. Since my son let me shoot his High plains .50 rifle, I've shot little else, and I now own a nice little collection of BP equipment.  I love it myself, and the only drawback is the cleaning end of it, but it's still worth it.
