    Looking for advice on the barrel porting on the Traditions Vortek muzzleloaders.

    Does this porting of the barrel make the REPORT of the gun a great deal louder than normal ?

    Thanks.

    It doesn't actually make it louder, porting redirects the sound, which makes what you hear louder--and more damaging to your ears.
