I would say the best option would be knight rifles. We have owned several and many on this sight have too. Anyone I have ever heard of owning one never had any complaints and they are really accurate and great quality. Bloodline bullets are our go to bullets with these guns but hornady xtps are a great bullet in them also.
My prey is my biggest enemy. That's why my first shot is lethal.

The Tikka of muzzleloaders would be something that never fired and when it did, it didn't hit what you aimed at.

I'd wait to see if 209 primers become legal for hunting in this state before you buy. That will broaden your options greatly. If things remain the same then CVA or Knight.  :twocents:

Except our tikkas are tack drivers that make those custom gun owner leave the range. And oh yeah lets not forget the amount of animals we tikka owners are feasting away on. That includes the elk Im eating from my knight "tikka" rifle. Lol

Black powder firearms are about 1000 years old. I wouldn't stress about it.

I have a muzzleloader pistol I bought online as a kit. I put it together myself and have never had an issue with it. For context, I once built a moonshine still that literally exploded.

If you are trying to build a railgun out of a muzzleloader, you are missing the point.

I love my CVA wolf, it's pretty accurate at 100yds. If you go with a CVA and they do legalize 209 primers it's $39 for a new breech plug and $20 for firing pin kit. As an ace in the hole sight rail and you would have one gun that could be used in any state.

Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3
