I'm an experienced handloader, cast my own boolits, etc. It's time to get into muzzleloading. I already have a TC Encore frame that I enjoy using as a hand rifle. Should I purchase the Encore .50 cal barrel and forend and simply use that? Or should I spend the same amount of money on a dedicated muzzleloader? What are the easier options for cleaning as well as the obvious needs of reliability and accuracy. Let me have your opinions - good and bad!
