Smokless ml build? /suggestions.

WTF- most of the avid participants on this sight are dead set against centerfire rifles in Iowa and then most of you build 600 yard muzzleloaders. If you need a 600 yard gun in Iowa you are a piss poor deer hunter. I think the state should go to no scopes on muzzleloaders like a few of the western states. It is after all a primitive weapon season and maybe it would eliminate some of the road hunting which I know happens with these long range guns.
I tend to agree somewhat. When I went to a smokeless ML, I got caught up in the craze of long range loads. Soon decided I wanted an easy shooting (mild recoil yet accurate) 100 yard load, as that is where I take most of my shots. I don't spend enough range time to try to take a 300+ yard shot on a deer. And I like the setting up in a spot where one isn't going to be tempted for such distances. In regards to center fire rifles, most have a multiple cartridge capacity. With the ML, you get one shot, better make it count.

Last year during LM I was hunting a cut bean field and was 300 yards from the road. I was watching a group of deer when a pickup pulled up and shot from the road. It definitely was a muzzleloader shot with no smoke. I immediately called the CO who lives 2 miles away and sprinted to my truck to try and catch him. Fortunately I never found the truck otherwise I would be typing this from prison.

Did he kill the deer?
Just how could you tell it was a muzzleloader?
I think we should ban all guns because they commit crimes.

Ya- I’ll admit - I do probably lean towards the side of the last bunch of comments. & I do feel a touch hypocritical & may as well call a spade a spade. Clearly I’m against rifles in iowa- no frigin doubt.
here’s honest to goodness truth why I got mine This is not an excuse or defending it... just why....
I’ve never killed a big deer with gun or ML. Ever. Always with bow. With ML or gun season, most my shots are 50-100 yards. I got sick of my TC having: 1) cleaning issues, pain in butt, even with buckhorn. Hated it. 2) misfire on occasion even when I was anal. 3) smoke after shot. Never could see a thing.

that’s why I just did “upgrade”. It’s interesting to know or think I can shoot 300 but not what went through brain when buying. I’ve shot a pile of does with it since owning & likely all that will be in its future. Overkill for a doe gun ;). Now one goes “mine can do 300, be cool to have one that shoots 400!” And I never will buy one or shoot that far. But yes, I will admit - I see merits to above comments in certain regards or worthy of consideration.

Nice gun! Love the stock. You did ruin it with a bolt on the wrong side though.

Geeze the regulations on guns for deer have gotten incredibly confusing. I remember when it was simple, shotgun only.

Where in the regs does it say you cannot shoulder it ? Or are you talking ATF regulations ? For the record not hunting muzzleloader with it anyway - but I know a band of hunters that are . They all have them .
