    Not even sure what that ^^^ means. A "centerfire" to me, means a primer fired metallic cartridge and a muzzleloader is just that.
    All skill is in vain when an angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket.

    Somewhat in the manner of Paul Matthews, you shoot muzzleloading bullets in a center fire.
    An example would be taking a .45-70 and shooting a 100 grains of black. The bullet of course is slightly under bore diameter and expands into the grooves, pretty much the same as done with large capacity black powder cartridges. No different from shooting any other muzzleloader except your "inline" can also be fired using brass cases filled with smokeless should the urge come upon you.

    A really quiet .45ACP bolt action would really be just too much fun when it could also be muzzleloaded with 400 to 500 grains of paper patched soft lead.

    That could be a hoot. Dad's neighbor said he was running I believe a 300 grn. .45 bullet over SMOKELESS in an H&R single shot he'd had bored out to .45. Said he achieved 2500 fps. Wow!
    Yes. Yes, I'm serious.

    Without reading all the posts, is this a real possibility for a thread?

    Well I am shooting BPCR in 40-65 and 45-110 with the holy black if that counts as "shooting large bore centerfires as muzzleloaders". I am not sure how far you would need to compress to get 100gr of the black in a 45-70 case. Maybe if you filled it to the rim compressed with a wad and then seated the bullet in groves and just slid the case in behind it. I have read about shuetzen rifle shooters doing it but not anything that large. Are you talking about using a round ball loaded in the case or loading a case as I described then feeding the a round ball into the muzzle and seating it on the case? My current load for the 45-110 is 90 grains ff with a slight compression behind a 535gr postel. Haven't worked up the load for the 40-65 yet.

    I just recently got into shooting black powder. Shooting a cap and ball revolver is just way too much fun! No wonder you can't have them in NYC. I sence a wave of muzzleloader purchases coming.

    I wait until The NMLRA shoot in the spring and fall and then I buy it there. Flintlocks in Niveveh, In. might be a place to try.

    Does anyone know of any places to purchase real black powder in Indiana? I just purchased my first flintlock and I need some powder. I just want to get a couple pounds to hold me over until the NMLRA spring shoot when Iíll stock up. Iíve only ever shot percussion guns before using substitutes.
