I know how you feel bud. There use to be a shop in St. Louis that was awesome. It was called The Hawken Shop and they had bought the original rights to the Hawken Rifle. They had everything under the sun you could ever want for muzzleloading, from original stuff to custom made. Hated it when they closed their doors. They reopened though, just in another state. They were exspensive too, but worth the price if you could afford it. At the same time they had some really good buys too. Ever get a ball stuck in a barrel? They made a really niffty jag for your ramrod. You know how most ball pullers are made, with a sheet metal screw to screw into the ball to pull it. Well that exspands the ball making it tighter in the barrel and harder to pull. They made a jag with a screw on one end, unscrew it and turn it around, and there was a drill bit on the other side. Drill into the ball first and it wouldn't exspand near as much making it a lot easier to pull. The guys that worked there were awesome to just talk with. They knew muzzleloading inside and out. I really miss that place.
