Muzzleloader or Slug gun??

My little brother broke his leg last week so he is going to miss out on rifle deer season this year, there is a late deer hunt for short range weapons (shotguns, muzzleloaders, archery and handguns) and his cast shoud be coming off about the time that opens, I've used traditional muzzleloaders with loose powder and round balls and it shoots pretty good, im wanting to get him something I can mount a scope on and I don't have any experience with slug guns and very little with inline muzzleloaders, what would you guys suggest I try??

Thanks

HR slug hunter in 20 guage single shot or the new savage bolt action 20 guage.

Both should give 3-4" groups max at 200 yds.

I would suggest looking at the specialty handgun section here on long range hunting. They can reach farther then slug guns and do it a lot more accurately. And they do it a whole lot cooler then rifles

I would love to use one of those specialty handguns other than we have restrictions keeping us from using them, the big thing is they have to be straight cased cartridges orginally designed for handgun use, they wouldn't let us use handguns for several years because of that and they just added them last year with tons of restrictions

flyin lizard,

More details, please!!

I'm in the market, as I live in Ohio where our options are pretty much pistol, slugs, or muzzleloader. I've been planning to buy a T/C contender in .44 mag but would be very interested to hear what works for you.

Thanks!
