    I'm thinking if this is possible. A 36 or 32 cal muzzle loader that could shoot saboted 338 or 323 caliber bullets.Or couldn't a person get enough powder in them to get the bullet to go fast enough?Seems like this would be a good long range muzzle loader?

    Got to ask why? Not legal for big game in any state that I know of. Most have 45 caliber minimum.

    It might be good however like said above its not legal for hunting and it will take a lot more money to get this set up than going with a .45 You have to think there must be a reason that it has not been done before.
