    Like motorcycles, it is best to start muzzle loading w a beginner's model. Pick up a cheapo Lyman cap-lock and make all the mistakes with that. Then once you've got some time in, then go for the nice flintlock.

    I don't ride bikes because I'd be dead in a week, although I still have lots of fun on 250 cc snowmobiles. I'm assuming these beginner problems include spending hours extracting misfires. I've held a Baker rifle, and of course immediately wanted one because Ned Stark. That will have to wait until I have more time.

    NEVER USE ANYTHING BUT BLACK POWDER!!!

    Since the word beginner appears in the text, may I offer some beginner tips for those that search and find this thread that are beginners?

    When using a black powder barrel, flintlock or otherwise, NEVER USE ANYTHING BUT BLACK POWDER!!!

    Read the barrel specs completely.

    Don't talk on the line when loading a black powder gun. Always pay the strictest of attention to every single thing you do! ( I have a ruined $300 barrel to prove it.!)

    I have owned both black powder and smokeless powder muzzle loaders. I love the smell of black powder anytime of day or night.

    What else delivers two flames and an explosion you can hold and use?

    There are numerous ways you can damage a muzzle loader. It just takes a bit to learn the intricacies and subtleties of muzzle loaders.
