Hello!
I just got my first muzzleloader rifle, a JUKAR (Spain)- .45cal black powder rifle. I was wondering where to purchase a starter kit for cleaning and shooting supplies?
Thanks!
Eric

There's lots of places, but here is a thread on the Forum that can help by listing the supplies. I'm not a fan of the starter kits. Look over the lists and go to some place such as Track of the Wolf, and other vendors. Where are you located? There may be a local gun shop that would have the supplies. Right now, finding powder and caps can be hard to locate.

RMC Ox-Yoke has a decent cleaning/loading package but is short of the powder measure.

Eric, welcome to the forum. I have a 1979 CVA Jukar Kentucky rifle 45 cal with a 33 inch barrel. My ramrod is not threaded to accept all the attachments that are available. If yours is the same way, you will need to purchase another ramrod that is threaded for the cleaning jag, patch puller or bullet puller. Grenadier has given you very sound advise on where to go for your supplies. Since you didn’t mention the rifle style or barrel length, if you buy a threaded ramrod make sure it is long enough. Also, if you need parts for your rifle, Deer Creek Products has a lot. Good luck and have fun.

I would suggest the same as Grenadier. Take some advice from those lists and visit an online shop like Track the Wolf and build your own kit. You’ll end up with quality pieces that you’ll actually use!
Shooting supplies are a little harder to come by these days. Hopefully you’ll get lucky and find something local.

Allot of things you need can easily be made or used from your normal shooting/cleaning supplies. That will get you going so you get a better idea what you need or want.
