Re: new to black powder have some????????????
Edge, that NULA is an awesome rifle. I didn't mention it because of the price tag. The Savage laminate is a good stock, but is heavy - 8.75 lbs. The plastic tupperware stock sucks, but the gun is a pound lighter at 7.75 lbs.
For a first timer, I'd go with the savage smokeless. However, if you are not going to go smokeless, the I'd go with a knight or TC. Those 2 are the best smokepoles.
