I had a T/C Hawken back several years ago and really enjoyed hunting with it but sold it. I am wanting to get back into hunting with a muzzleloader and need some input. I was using 90gr. of fff powder behind a 50cal. buffalo bullet and that is where I will start this time. I do not want an inline and have been looking at the Lyman Deer Stalker in stainless but have heard some good things about the Cabelas Sporterized Hawken. Can anyone tell me of their exp. with either of the rifles and what the were using in them. I wish that I could find a T/C Renegade and my search would be over. Also, my hunting will be for deer and hogs for the most part. Thanx for your help.
