I'm looking for a muzzle loader. I can't remember the make but it has interchangeable barrels,one for black powder, and one for rifle chambered in the caliber of choice,and I believe a shotgun barrel too. Does anyone know who makes this gun? Thompson center,knight,???? Thanks Jim

Thompson Center has two models that will allow you to switch barrels for shooting blackpowder or other calibers. The Encore and the G2. I think the Encore is in .50 cal and the G2 is .45 caliber. The Encore barrel rifling is the better for the of the 2 for all around shooting. If you what just a blackpowder rifle, I can recommend the T/C Omega. Great shooter and the Power Built Bullets are very accurate.

Thanks for the replies. Yup it's the Encore Magnum 209X50. 50 cal. muzzle loader and a rifle barrel in my choice of calibers. Now if you guys could steer me in the right caliber, mainly whitetail but do plan on going on a caribou and moose hunt in the future. It goes up to a .375 H&R round. Don't think I need that much power but one never knows. Thanks again, Jim

If it was me I would go with a 270. It will be excellent for whitetail and caribou. It may be a little light for moose but how often will you hunt moose.
