I am trying to figure out what would be a better hunting rifle type. A local hunting club are selling some flintlock rifles and they are kind of pricey but as I have seen most flintlock rifles that aren't made of plastic and synthetics are. They are selling a Thopmson Center Renegade that was bored to .58 caliber, a Pedersoli Jaeger Target Rifle in .54 caliber, a Track of the Wolf 1792 Contract Rifle in .54 caliber and various American longrifles in calibers ranging from .32 to .62. The Renegade is $850 and was bored by a man named Bobby or Bob Hoyt, the Pedersoli Jaeger is $900 and the 1792 Contract is $800. The long rifles in calibers .45 to .62 go from $700-$1800. I will be exclusively hunting white tail deer as there is nothing else in my area worth hunting with a rifle. Which of these weapons would you here on the forum more experienced than me make your hunting rifle if you could only have one, I don't really know much about hunting with muzzleloaders as I only ever hunted with a Single Shot Westernfield 12ga, Traditional Muzzleloaders seem like something I could get into but I want to find out which one of these rifles would be the best overall as I don't want to have 5 rifles to do the job of one rifle. Thank you to all who add their input to this thread.
