I have a couple of TC Hawkens. But.....

My advise is to buy a Lyman GPR in .54 caliber and with the 1/60 twist round ball barrel.

I forgot to mention, both are 50 cal. I’ll let the knowledge Here fill you in on these rifles. Welcome to the forums.

In our area Craigs list doesn't allow firearms including muzzleloaders. You might also see if there is an active muzzle club in the area. Often folks there are more than happy to get someone new involved or have firearms to sell.

Gun shows are a great place to find a good deal also. There are 2 shows coming up this month, in Fayetteville and Springdale.

Try Craiglist also for your state they might have something for you.
While you're not supposed to be able to advertise guns on Craigslist or complete guns on ebay, I'd consider putting an ad on Craigslist saying that you're looking for muzzle loading supplies, etc. I did that in my area and have had one contact from it so far.

To add with regard to the .54 cal, I use 28 gauge over powder fiber wads with 3/4 oz of number 8 shot and over shot card for close/mid range birds just to add to it's versatility . 535 rb, .540 HB minnie and shot.
