Re: New to Black Powder
dragonrider brings up a good point...not being familiar with Canada's regulations as far as season and firearm limits, both of those could be an important variable as to what you buy. Here in Missouri we don't have a muzzleloader season any more, it's now an "alternative method" where you can hunt with a varied assortment of weapons, from a centerfire handgun using expanding ammo, black powder rifles, and something called "atlatls" which is basically a freaking spear thrown with a special "launcher"!
Pay no attention to them "purists" that want you to mess with one of them antique BP rifles, they probably still churn their own butter and poop outside...if you're wanting to bring home the meat, get that inline that Jack posted the link to or one similar. Push a 400gr bullet with 100grs of BP behind it and you won't have any problem with Bullwinkle. Then once the BP bug bites you it'd be time to play with the sidelocks and such. I remember reading somewhere that y'all might have restrictions as to firearms up there, does that include black powder or are you pretty well free to own and shoot as many of those as you like?
