gun choice

ken nikiel

being in illinois im limited to straight wall cartridge single shot rifles, muzzle loaders or shotgun slugs. considering getting a rifle chambered in .350 legend and wondering if anyone here uses this caliber on whitetails?
Are smokeless muzzleloaders permitted in your state? I don't have a 350 legend, but I know there are lots of folks who use them for whitetail. If smokeless muzzleloaders are permitted, they can out perform a 350 legend by leaps and bounds. I got a smokeless on an Encore frame a couple years ago and love it. It is a 300 yard gun and devastating on deer. It is shooting a 275 grain .45 cal bullet at around 2500 fps. Not all states permit smokeless muzzleloaders, so check your regulations. They are not cheap as most are custom builds these days. If you decide to go that route, I can provide more info on mine.

Last I checked they were legal in Illinois, but I have not checked lately.
i would have to check that, but i dont believe we can use smokeless powder muzzle loaders. i believe the minimum is .50 caliber. again, i need to check.
