    The Traditional Muzzleloading Association - we are 101% traditional muzzleloaders - the TMA is dedicated to preserving the rich and fascinating heritage of the traditional muzzleloading firearms of early America - no inlines, no cartridge guns.

    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    I don't really see them as competing sites, as they are single topic focus, much like this one is.

    i queried the CB mods about putting up site forum links to/for informational purposes and they approved as long as there's no shilling or selling or for-profit orgs.

    If interests ever extend to Long Range Muzzle Loading, I have lots of information on the subject, also British military long arms. There’s also an extensive library of free to download articles and a magazine. Have a browse at:
