The only rule I can think of is no modern or in-line rifles. Just Cap and Ball and Flintlocks.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

If you read under the forum name it says no in-lines so that is covered

Please let me know if any of you would like a specific thread dealing with Muzzleloaders moved here.  If you do then send me the link to the thread so I don't have to go looking for it, well I won't go looking for it actually  :D

What does in-line muzzleloading mean? I see mostly modern looking rifles that are muzzleloading when searching for that... but no definition of the term
So no Remington rolling blocks or any of that.

In-line means the charge and the cap are in-line with one another. A rolling block is an in-line rifle. Side lock guns have an external nipple and or flint that is positioned off to the side, so in a right handed gun the fire has to make a 90 degree turn into the combustion chamber to ignite the powder. after the trigger is pulled. Its not in-line, but 90 degrees off line.

There are several examples of inline ignition in the earliest caplocks.  It is not exactly a space age technology.  Nor is a breechloading muzzleloader al that innovative, especially if one is familiar with the Redcoat sniper Col. Patrick Ferguson.  But for all intents and purposes, no one would gripe if you happened to post a faithful replica of one of THOSE guns!!!

Technically I think cap and ball revolvers are in line to a degree, but they usually fall into the primitive category. I'd say if the original it is copied, or loosely based on, was made before 1865 and it loads from the barrel end and doesn't use a cartridge it usually qualifies for this type of category.

By the way, The Rifle Shoppe sells the parts kit for the breech loading muzzleloader Ferguson Rifle with an assembled lock for just $1,800

I think we all know the in lines we are speaking of are modern ones that use shotgun primers for ignition and basicly are a more modern looking rifle
failure is an option, everyone fails, it's how you handle it that matters.

Hey I'm 33 and would rather post here about stick bows and muzzeloaders and don't have facebook.

Even the young guys are old on this forum. : )
