    Looking to purchase a Muzzleloader and trying to decide on a rifle. Any suggestions would be really appreciated! In my searches so far I am interested in the T/C Black Diamond XR and the Knight Bighorn. Anyone been shooting these for long? I'm also curious if anyone knows a store that carries these on the rack so I can hold before purchase.
    Thanks.

    I have both and both are fine shooters.
    I bought my Knight at Bi Mart and you can find the T/C's at most stores, Joes, Sportman's Warehouse. I have found that they shoot best with 100 grains of triple seven powder and heavier bullets. Could not get good groups with saboted bullets. Use musket caps too. PM me for more info
