Hi All-- I'm fixin' to get ready to buy my first muzzleloader. I live about five miles away from the Traditions factory in Connecticut, and they sell their stuff in there for unbelievably low proces. Usually it's a rifle with a minor nick or two on the stock, priced way down. So I'll probably go with a traditions Pursuit (break-open) or Evolution (bolt). I'd appreciate any advice as to whether a break-open or bolt action is better. Also, it looks to me that .50 caliber is the most popular. I'm trying to keep this fairly simple, so I'm figuring on sabots in front of pyrodex or triple-seven pellets. The rifle will be used for deer in our late muzzloader season. Scopes are legal in Connecticut, but I don't plan to scope it, at least not right away. Any thoughts?
