I have just spent the last 2 hours wading through state regulations regarding muzzleloader specific seasons. As far as I can tell Wa, ID, and OR all have the most stringent regulations regarding muzzleloaders. My thinking is that I would like to buy a muzzleloader that is legal for those states as I cant afford 2 of them, and then I can use it pretty much anywhere else I go. That being said it seems that without getting a custom muzzleloader, options are pretty limited. The T/C northwestern explorer looks pretty good, or the T/C Hawken, or CVA elkhorn pro. I would love any other suggestions so far as specific rifles, or redirection if my thought process is flawed. I would rather pay more for something good quality.
