Which one would you choose and why? Torn between 50 and 45, and what's the diff between the bare primer models and the "full plastic shell"? Can you swab bore by simply removing the bolt like a centerfire?

Thanks, not new to muzzleloading, but new to inlines...

I would go with the 50. Also, shoot 777 instead of black powder. I use the pellets, 2 per round. This stuff is a LOT easier to clean up compared to black powder residue. Just run hot water through the barrel, swab it out, apply a rust preventative oil with another patch or brush and you are done. I also use Gorilla Grease, the purple stuff, as thread lube on the breech plug.

Heard the 777 and Black Horn 209 were both good clean propellants. Glad they were developed, never enjoyed cleaning the old black powder.

50s seem to have the best sabot selection, but some of the new "long range capable inlines" seem to push 45 as the answer for long range performance? Marketing?

Think I found my answer on the bare primer vs full plastic.

Apparently the plastic makes it 100% weatherproof, but they are prone to leak gas when fired and may hurt ignition with certain powders. In short, sounds like bare primer is the way to go unless you plan to hunt underwater.

Thanks for the tip on the gorilla grease!

What pushed you to the knight? Solid rifles my dad has a .45 disc extreme, I just like the break actions more.

My first gen CVA Accura .50 cal will shoot sub moa. Made myself a few plugs that will shoot blackhorn209 reliably.
Harvester crush rib .458 sabot gives lots of bullet options. Watch breech design of you want to shoot blackhorn209.
