  3. A crossbow is another tool for a hunter to harvest a meal, it doesn't matter to me,ive never shot a bow or crossbow and if I could be in the woods earlier and use a crossbow I would buy. If the state wants to include crossbows with the archery season i'm for it I'm waiting for Long Island to let us use a crossbow
  4. The accuracy depends on the twist rate of your rifle. If you have a 1-48 twist you can shoot round ball or conical. anything slower and a conical won't shoot accurately . If your not sure on the twist rate of your rifle go on you tube and search how to check your rifle twist.. Good luck!!!

  13. Hello ladies and gents.. Iam looking to buy my first shotgun and Iam set on buying a benelli nova with the comet stock in a pump action. since I'm new to shotguns and what something easy to maintain. I was thinking of going to field and stream or cabelas there prices are good compared to LGS. Ive heard the guns at these store are not the same as what you get at LGS. What is your take?? P.S. going to use the shotgun for clay shooting and pheasant
  14. Use what powder or pellets and bullet your rifle likes and enjoy shooting your muzzleloader its a learning experience. and try different cleaning products to clean the muzzleloader and breech plug
  15. Sounds good blackthorn is very good from what people say. You can pickup the any cleaner at field and stream
  16. What powder are you using?? If your using pyrodex or triple seven there are a lot of cleaners out there. for the nipple CVA has a jar with cleaner and a basket where you place the nipple in and let it soak while you clean there bore if used it and works good also for the bore there is a foam made by TC and its very easy to use. If your using Blackhorn 209 powder then you can use the same cleaning product for your centerfire rifle
  17. For the meat, spending time in the woods enjoying nature.And since been hunting with a outfitter i've meet some nice people and made friends too
