If you go the smokey route, Triple Seven is the ony way to fly. Clean-up is at least twice as fast as Pyrodex. All you need to clean is straight water....it really works!

Better check your local laws on those smokeless guns....they are not legal in alot of places! Federal refuges, some states better check em before you buy one! Would suck to have a new M/L and not be able to use it where you wanna hunt!

Re: new to black powder have some????????????

I know of no place where any of these rifles are not legal, at least where other in-lines are legal with a closed ignition!
Certainly the Savage and NULA can use smoke too, for areas where smokeless powder is not allowed. I would rather have the ability to use smokeless if you go someplace where it is allowed.

HUH?

Are you implying that Savage's and NULA's are outlawed in Mississippi ? I don't think so!

Smokeless may not be legal for hunting, but the rifle does not make a difference.

IMO, if I lived in Mississippi, I would absolutely buy a smokeless capable rifle.

1) In the future they may change the regulations forbidding smokeless;

2) You can target shoot with smokeless and work up loads without the need for cleaning your rifle, ( IMO, the #1 reason that most folks don't shoot their muzzleloaders much );

3) If you go hunting to different States, some will probably allow smokeless.

Now there are some States that don't allow 209 primers or closed ignition, or mandate side or flint locked weapons, but most Knights and T/C's are not legal there either.
I still know of NO PLACE where the Savage or NULA is not allowed, where a similarly designed Knight would be allowed!

Re: new to black powder have some????????????

All of my statements are for hunting ONLY! yea you can have em, shoot up the world if you like! but HUNTING is a different matter....Sorry! Didnt mean that they were all out illegal just talking about hunting issues!

PRIMITIVE WEAPONS
"Primitive firearms" for the purpose of hunting deer, are defined as single or double barreled muzzle-loading rifles of at least .38 caliber; single shot, breech loading, cartridge rifles (.38 caliber or larger) of a kind and type manufactured prior to 1900, and replicas, reproductions or reintroductions of those type rifles; and single or double-barreled muzzle-loading, shotguns with single ball or slug. All muzzle-loading Primitive Firearms must use black powder or a black powder substitute with either percussion caps or #209 shotgun primers or flintlock ignition. Breech loading single shot rifles must have exposed hammers and use metallic cartridges. Cartridges may be loaded either with black powder or modern smokeless powder. Scopes of any magnification are allowed on primitive weapons. Sidearms are not allowed during primitive weapon season.


That should clear it up! and I dont see an issue with hunting it during the general gun season!
