    Default Small game muzzleloader

    I was wondering if anyone use their muzzle loader for small game? If so what do you use and what do you hunt with it.
    Could you turkey hunt with it?

    Turkey can easily be done with a shotgun barrel.

    I have used my 50 cal for bunnies with light charges. It's something different and I had a lot of lead I wouldn't use for big game.

    This winter I'm looking into building a small bore Crockett or the like just for small game.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    GW I've been using a Black Powder shotgun barrel on my Traditions in-line for Turkey for years. Makes for a great hunting experience...Smoke and Feathers !!

    I've squirrel hunted with my .45, head shots only or they are tough to clean. But fun and lots of action to give you practice with it.

    So I am guessing that for Turkey you used like a ounce of lead pellets and you guy's that are using it for squirrel and rabbits are you using a single slug or pellets as well?

    I use a wad cup that holds 1 1/8th oz. with #6 shot. Never had to shot farther than 20 yds...so that does the trick nicely.

    P rocker, you likely won't have much success shooting loose shot from a rifled barrel...........................Daniel
