    What is the best type of muzzleloader I looked at some break open and some bolt action but I don't know which one would be better and easier to clean I have a side lock that I love but I want some more reliable thanks

    I like break action muzzle loaders. They now have removable breach plugs which opens up the barrel for cleaning. For cleaning I simply unscrew the breach plug and remove the forearm screw. Then take off the barrel and run hot water down it. Dry everything and run a oil swab and put it back together. I use a breach plug grease to keep the breach plug from locking up. Very easy. Last year I hunted with a CVA Wolf. You don't even need a tool to remove some of the newer breach plugs. Break Action is the way to go.

    If a side lock isn't reliable for you you're not doing something right and an inline probably won't be any more reliable till you fix what you're doing wrong.

    I ain't had no problem with mind but I want to coyote hunt with a muzzleloader and I don't want to use my use my side lock. People around here has told me the the in line was better and I can't find loose powder like I can the pellets

    break action muzzleloaders are great. One of the best companies to ever make one was NEF or H&R. NEF has been making break action shotguns and rifles longer than anyone. There quality was unmatched. Then a few years ago they started to make muzzleloaders what a perfect combination. Then all of a sudden they were bought out by remington then stopped making black powder rifles. if you could find a H&R rifle that would be the one to get
