    I love this muzzleloader. I have used many other brands thinking they were all the same, boy was I wrong! Knight produces hands down the best muzzleloaders on the market. After missing 2 very good cows (one was less than 30 yards) with my old muzzleloader and fighting it for 2 years to get it on target I went to my local sporting goods store and snatched one of these up, out of the box set up for Western hunting I was shooting 3 inch groups at 100 yards so I decided to try and find more elk, instead I found a dandy 4×3 blacktail buck and dropped the hammer on him at 20 yards. My first deer ever is now hanging in my shop thanks to knight and thier excellent standards! I am shooting knight Bloodline 300gr sabot bullets with 100gr of triple 7 pellets and musket caps primers. Thanks so much to knight for restoring my faith in muzzleloaders and helping to fill my freezers!
