:yeah: Felon. I bow hunt but the thought of other means was always nice... If they would ever open up big game hunting with air rifles, that would be the bees knees. Compressed air 350g projectile.. No powder, low noise..  :IBCOOL:
I think you could go out of state.  If I remember correctly, Florida doesn't restrict blackpowder guns.  They have hogs, deer and other things.  You can spear hogs too....a warm up for your bear spearing.
Yeah there is actually a handful of states I could potentially hunt with ML.
Lol how the heck do you remember that I want a spear bear? My memory is barely that good anymore.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

One more question...... for now, lol.  How do you get good rifling if your bullet is covered w a plastic cover (sabot)?

Not a problem at all. The polymer sabot conforms to the bore of the rifle.  Even though a ML bore has very shallow grooves the sabot conforms and shoots the loaded bullet with great accuracy.

The key is to get the sabot that fits your bore the best. Sabots come in different thicknesses just for this.

Once you load a sabot/bullet combination and push it out the breech you will not have a problem seeing the land and groove impression on the sabot.

Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

This thread is like Christmas at the in-laws. My brother in law asks a good question and pretty soon everyone else butts in and changes the topic blurting out whats on their mind and soon no one remembers why we are even here and the question was never answered.

Nice thread jacking guys🤦‍♂️

Somebody needs a snickers, lol!  The thread started out asking about a certain bullet, it just continued from there, with a slight bump in the road.
