I think you have to be a little more specific or we could go on forever. What type of gun are you looking for, what do you want to spend etc.?

All the inline models that you mention are excellent units. it just comes down to what you want to spend.

When I went shopping, I had a pretty good idea that I wanted the Encore. Well, when I put it up to my shoulder, it did not feel natural to me, and I had to adjust the gun and my head to get a good sight picture.

I tried several other models, including Savage and CVA. I picked up a TC Omega, and it fit me very well. I have been very happy with its accuracy as well. I have no regrets at about buying it, and it was less expensive than the Encore.

I have a NEF huntman I got it around $150, shoots great and an easy clean with 777 powder, a really nice set up and I can always send it back and get another barrel made for around 50-80 bucks. Very happy with it, Thanks

I just recently bought the Remington 700. I've been shooting a Hawkins cap lock I bought at Cabelas a long time ago. Talk about a difference. Not that I don't like the Hawkins, but going to that 700 is like going from a Geo to a Cadillac.

I've got a TC Omega too. Before that I had a NEF Ultramag. The biggest advantage on the Omega (aside from the longer barrel increasing muzzle velocity and accuracy) is the EASY cleaning of the breach. The most important thing for a new muzzleloading shooter to learn in my mind is that they require LOTS MORE CLEANING than a regular gun and with that breach right there it sure cleans up easy on the Omega type guns...

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
