Lighter the better now. Recoil isn’t a problem - probably only shoot it coupla times a season.When picking a muzzleloader to hunt with how much attention do you give to it's weight?
I've got a couple of true Hawken type rifles that are fairly heavy. Recently I've become acquainted with a .54 Lyman Trade Rifle which is shooting well and is is a whole lot easier to pack around. Another lighter gun I shoot the T/C PA Hunter Carbine.
I suppose if you hunt from a stand the heft of your gun might not be so important.
