My new Elk rifle Laughing
Been on the bucket list for awhile and seen IN Stock at  http://www.muzzle-loaders.com/muzzleloader-rifles.php

So I thought what hell I'll try one of the small bore M/Lers out. Anyone playing with the 32cal???

I've thought about it for squirrels, but I don't really hunt for squirrels. I was 11 years old the last time I killed a squirrel.

great little rifles! Even on the strictly traditional forums, they are some of their favorites. They've gone up in price but its pretty rare to find a small bore muzzy these days.

I've been looking for a .36 cal for a while. I've read that the .32s foul quickly due to the small diameter bore and have to be swabbed every shot or two. When there's a squirrel den tree, you don't want to spend your time swabbing.

Built a 32 a while back and have been shooting it and I have not had the fouling that some people talk about...I don't overload it...I use 20 to 30 grains of Swiss 3f an "0" buckshot and .015 pocket drill with a small amount of lube...It is a flinter I call the Rat Wrecker...32's or 36's are a HOOT easy on the powder budget and if you buy buckshot by the 5 lb box it is really cheap also...

.36 cal is on the list next...The 13yo Daughter walked in after school today and said "I want one Dad". I said Ah Hell...Here it's yours! My new M/L buddy I guess. Not a bad thing

Having a daughter for a hunting buddy is a GREAT thing!  You're a lucky man.

I enjoyed my Crockett for over 12 years when I sold it to have a flinter built.  They are capable of sub 1" groups at 50 yards.  They're cheap to feed and major fun to shoot.  .32 caliber rifles DO NOT foul any worse than a .54; I could shoot mine all afternoon without wiping.  Don't sell them short, either; they leave the .22mag in the dust with their killing power.  The .32 is quite capable of handling coyote size varmints and at distances some wouldn't believe.  The .32 can be a mild rat/squirrel/rabbit round or a raging powerhouse and the Crockett is among the best.
