Best Muzzleloader Powder & Muzzleloader Primers


Especially if you’re new to the muzzleloader world, I think you’ll agree with me when I say that choosing the right propellant and primer for your muzzleloader can be an overwhelming experience due to the sheer number of options available. I struggled with the same problem when I first got started hunting with a muzzleloader many years ago. Since then I’ve tried lots of different load combinations. Some worked better for me than others, but I’ve also gained a lot of insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the various propellants, primers, and bullets under different conditions.

In this episode, I’m going to provide the pros and cons of some of the most popular powder and primers and provide some recommendations on which one you should be using.
