    I bought a smooth bore 12 ga barrel from Traditions for my Pursuit. Easy Peasy, straight swap of the .50 Cal barrel, no tooling required

    Then picked up Fiber wads, Overpowder & Overshot Wads and shot cups from a place on-line called Circle Fly https://circlefly.com/.

    They also have some good info on how to load your ML etc.

    Mike could you show a link to your gun and the extra barrel or another gun like the CVA Wolf? I can really only seem to find stuff with Cabelas.

    Traditions stopped selling the optional 12 ga barrel about 2 yrs after I got mine.... and I don't see anyone that sells that option anymore. They all seem to be dedicated shotgun ML's and I don't see any that are not rifled barrels (for slugs)

    This guy walks you thru the load of the Knight ML...I think he called it the TK 2000...HaHa...

    I have been experimenting with a Stevens Single 12 gauge (as BP Shotgun), black powder, wax paper wadding, lead shot, wax paper wadding (and princess auto, steel sanding blasting media #7.5 to #8.5) as a alternative shotgun post SHTF.
    Dave Canterbury makes a 12 or 20 gauge, shotgun case (base ring), that accepts a 209 primer, instead of using cut down high brass shells. They still work and are field expedient.

    Pretty good results so far at 30 yards

    I am curious has anyone made their own black powder and tried it?

    I'm pretty sure that is not legal. It would be similar to bomb making materials.......................... Daniel

    Then possessing gun powder would also be illegal as it can easily be used for making bombs?

    Nope not illegal to make your own BP, I do. It is getting harder to find 100% potassium Nitrite (Stump remover), but sulfur can be bought at Health food stores. I make my own Charcoal (Paint can method with Willow). A batch takes me 3 days to make and I make about 800gr a ta time (enough for 80 shots, it goes faster then you think..when you are not buying). YouTube has lots of video's to make BP, be careful between lift powder for fireworks (more vids then firearms BP), and I use the alcohol method after initial 24hrs of pulverization of base components (.690 lead balls as crush media). Quite rewarding and stick to each process, weights and products used. Even subtle differences can affect performance of powder over each batch, but I have never had a batch fail to ignite or propel the lead cast bullets I make.. I am having fun with BP shotgun loads right now.

    I've shot bunnies with .45 and .54 cal ML's, and I just bought a dedicated small-game muzzleloader; a Thompson Center .36 calibre Seneca.
    That should be a great little critter gitter!
    I'd also like to build or purchase a .32 or .36 cal flint longrifle.
