    Checked zero with the new bullets -- shooting Barnes Expander MZs instead of the Hornady SSTs as I wasn't impressed with the performance.

    Didn't need to touch it -- ready to go for Monday. I'm not much of a deer hunter, but always sit a few days of the gun season.

    I would use the muzzleloader-but with this regulation to fully unload the gun at the end of the legal shooting time-or load it only at the start of it (like removing primer would not be enough)i find it painful to remove the charge and the bullet in my inline gun, so i rather use the slug gun.Slick ,quiet and no extra fuss.

    is this a new one? i remember years ago right in the book muzzle loader just needs primer removed.
    lots of guys keep the bullet and charge in all week and just make sure its seated every morning.

    Unfortunatelly ,the rule WAS always-You can have the charge and the bullet in the gun ONLY while traveling from one hunting site ,to another one.
    Basically-during legal hunting hrs.
    Just remove the primer.Probably to "allow"some slack for hunters,not to unload every time they move with vehicles during the day.


    Before-and after legal shooting hrs,the LAW treats muzzleloaders UNLOADED only when : -The primer is removed-and there is no charge and bullet in the barrel.

    On this forum there are many former LEOs and MNR employees-they can confirm.
    But-unfortunately, that is the law.
    No logic there either...........but that is another story.
