Muzzleloading Resources

bp hunter 20120319_0379 (1).pngTraditional muzzleloaders add a new dimension to firearm hunting. Practice and familiarity with your muzzleloader is a must. More modern muzzleloaders approach the accuracy and range of a modern center fire rifle but don't allow for a second quick shot in the event an animal is not dropped by the first shot. This section contains resources on muzzleloaders and hunting with them.

A muzzleloader is a firearm that is loaded only through the muzzle (the open end of the barrel). Muzzleloaders use special powder to fire, and require special handling.
