Well a little bit of background, long range shooting and loading are nothing new to me, but front-stuffers are. I've shot them here and there, but never developed a load for one, or owned one. On a long chance my mom drew a ML bull elk tag. I need to get a ML and get it shooting good out to 100yds by Sep. I'd like to get a muzzle loader that I could do something with in the future. A few years ago I was set on a Savage ML10-II. I'd like something I could reach out to 300yds. Further would be better, but I don't want to wrap up a bunch of money into a custom ML that gets used once every 5-10 years. I've seen a few customs that are very impressive, but ML aren't really my thing. Am I on the right path looking into a Savage. Any other suggestions?
