If smokeless is legal you can get a Savage ML, OR a Savage centerfire and convert it to a ML in something other than 50 caliber...if legal where you hunt.

BH209 gets very close to Savage velocities and is pretty clean.

    Looks like a modern cartridge rifle...kinda takes away what a traditional muzzleloading rifle is supposed to be. I don't understand why people even bother with them...other than just extending a season.

    I have one and have developed a load w/300gr Barnes original bullets that will shoot MOA or less to 300 yards. They are great muzzleloaders.
    I'm shooting the Savage 10ML with 40gr. of Vht. N110 . shoots consistently moa with hornady 250 gr. SST. What powder you using with the 300 gr. Barnes? I can't get AA 5744 to group or generate vbelocities over 1950fps.

    IMO, this is Muzzleloader Hunting, and NOT traditional Muzzleloading!
    Just as in archery, some folks build their own bows and some folks enjoy compounds!

    I think that they all apply in hunting, if they are not for you then stick to what you enjoy.

    On other forums I have seen folks complain of smokeless but advocate black powder substitutes. IMO, if it loads from the muzzle then it is a muzzleloader. Enjoy the sport as you see fit

    Try 60 grains of H-4198 ignited by 10g of VV N-110 under the 300g bullet. (10 grains of N-110 down the tube first, followed by the H-4198 then the sabot/bullet. It should be good for right around 2450 fps.
