Not sure if you can tell, but, I'm in Michigan. Im new to traditional muzzleloader shooting. Not new to ML shooting tho. I bought a White Mntn Carbine .45 and i am really enjoying it. I've been shooting MLs since 93 and casting bullets for only about 2 years. I understand that certain topics or subjects are frowned upon so I apologize in advance cuz I will surely screw up, eventually.
