4 New Muzzleloaders Reviewed and Ranked

4 muzzleloaders to choose from.

Check it out:

The newest modern muzzleloaders are better than ever. But which one is right for you? We test four brand-new models to help you choose wisely.

For 2013, in-line muzzleloader makers have introduced the first modern hammerless break-action designs and totally reinvented the breech plug, for starters. Below is the year’s new crop of front-stuffers, and after days of testing each for quality, design, accuracy, and overall performance, I recommend that you get in line to check one out.

First I measured and weighed the guns to confirm factory specifications. Then I handled and inspected each to gauge balance, feel, and quality of construction. I dry-fired each extensively to test the quality of the trigger pull and used a Lyman Digital Trigger Pull Gauge (cabelas.com) to test the weight, taking an average of 10 pulls. After scoping each, I shot the heck out of them, using several different loads to test out-of-the-box accuracy, recoil, and handling ­characteristics.
