I have sold all of my firearms and want to go strictly with a muzzleloader for hunting. I have had the TC Encore with 209 X 50 as well as rifle barrels. I am trying to decide what to replace it with, either TC Pro Hunter FX or Impact. I have no need for interchangeable barrels. Please give me pro's and con's of each. I want to stay with Thompson Center.
1St Choice In Muzzleloaders

The two rifles you picked are about as different as can be. One is top of the line and the other is bottom of the line in the T/C line up. Since you had a Encore, you are aware of the traits of the Pro Hunter. The Pro's of the T/C Pro hunter is its a top of the line, balanced sabot shooting machine that is expensive in muzzleloading worlds. The Impact is the bottom of the line, but for an inline rifle, its a meat and potatoes rifle. Which means for hunting, it would probably be all you need. And being a T/C you are assured of quality. You would save some money with the Impact. But they are both basically going to do the same things.

Thankyou for a very intelligent and helpful response. I figure for a hunting arm, the Impact will do everything that the Encore did. I will also have money leftover to put a high quality scope on it.

I have a friend who just bought the CVA Wolf combo with the Konus scope. That is one heck of alot of firearm for 3 bones. Yes, I have considered the CVA's. And yes, they have come far with their products. Now, if I wasn't so hung up on TC I may take a closer look. It's very hard to break old habits. But thanks again for the suggestion.

TC is very good standing behind their products should you ever need it.
Any of the TC products I ever held or shot were keepers. Most of my experience is with their older flintlock offerings.
