I'll second UC's notion about not buying an Encore for just the muzzleloading aspect. Many new MLers to choose from that are a couple of hundred bucks cheaper and shoot very well. My Encore has more kick than any other MLer I shoot and shot developement was difficult. Just something to think about before you buy an Encore.
