In Oregon, we are required to use an open ignition muzzleloader, and cannot use 209 primers or musket caps. What open ignition muzzleloader would you recommend that used #11 caps? I see Knight is again manufacturing the Bighorn, which looks like a good option. I am most interested in a 50 caliber.

Plunger style would be ok, Maybe even a traditional sidelock.

I would like to muzzleloader to also be legal in Idaho. I think Idaho requires a swinging hammer. A friend recommended the TC Northwest Explorer. Any experience with that muzzleloader?
