New Report: Muzzleloaders Vs. Centerfires

Gun Digest the Magazine recently received this message from Toby Bridges of the North American Muzzleloader Hunting Association. The link provides some very interesting information.

Click here to read a new comparison of the ballistics and maximum effective range of modern in-line ignition muzzleloaders vs. that of centerfire rifles and traditional flintlock and percussion muzzleloaders.

“As a hunter who has hunted with a muzzleloader since 1963, and who has evolved right along with muzzle-loaded hunting rifles and loads, I have gotten more than just a little tired of less-than-knowledgeable opponents who fight against expanded muzzleloader hunting opportunities,” Bridges wrote. “Especially when they wrongly claim that the performance of today’s in-line ignition rifles and loads are too much like that of a modern centerfire rifle when it comes to range and knockdown power to be allowed during a separate “muzzleloader-only” season.
