Hello Josh,

I had the LDR and it was a good shooting rifle. One other Traditions that I highly recommend will be the Traditions Strikerfire. With the bare bones model, you won't be spending much more than the LDR. I highly suggest you check it out!

The 30" barrel produced around 50 to 75 FPS higher velocity over the 28" barrel, so its not a huge amount.

The strikerfire though has some real good upgrades like the 2 stage trigger and one thing i Love, they ditched the bullet guiding muzzle so you get more useable barrel length.

Nothing wrong with the LDR, in fact the sportsmans guide has the thumbhole model on sale for something like $349 which includes a scope.

Happy New Year everyone! I'm also New to muzzleloader and I got an Optima Elite Pro. The one you need a 12mm socket to remove the breech plug. Can I use 209BH powder with this model? Can a QRBP fit into this model or no?
