I'm an absolute novice to muzzleloaders and would appreciate any advice you all could give me. I'm going to try elk with a muzzleloader this fall. I've been doing a little research and I am thinking that I wat to go with a more traditional style rifle. I'm leaning towards a Lyman Deerstalker, stainless, in .54 caliber. I plan on shooting conicals, maybe the TC maxi-ball. Anyone have experience with these? Am I on the right track here? Thanks for your input.
