Those are all great accomplishments, especially the young man with the lion taken with the underhammer. But let's be honest. I noticed only about 4 true muzzleloaders in all the pics. By muzzleloader I mean traditional bp guns with pre 1860 technology with no plastic, stainless steel, state-of-the-art saboted bullets and scopes. I'm talking traditional percussion or flint (which I prefer) and iron sights.

Why not just use an M700, Winchester, Ruger, etc rifle in suitable calibers. I fail to see the difference.

Jim SHOCKEY has my vote of the year as top sportsman,his enthusiasm is contagious yet still quiet the hunter while running productions.IT'S my opinion he would make a fine spokeperson for the shooting sports.

EZRVS1-Your absolutely correct. He had a backup, they always do on dangerous hunts. In my experiences with a muzzle loader he would not have gotten enough penetration. Unless maybe he used cast bullets. But even so, it's pretty gutsy isn't it! Not something I'll soon try.

Taking a cape buffalo with a muzzle loader is impressive. Did Shockey have a backup loaded, or did the PH finish it off with his .470 double? Either way, taking on this dangerous brute with a ML requires guts, or lunacy. Good job.

The muzzle-loader is a great weapon.One way to get the adrenaline pumping.Dont think I will be hunting dangerous game with a front loader anytime soon.Hats off to those who do.

I would be buying a double barreled muzzleloader for hunts like these folks are taking on.. maybe a gun bearer with a second rifle too. Which tells you any African hunt this boy manages to organized would be with my favorite centerfire rifles. I would have to experience the novelty of hunting large big game on this continent with a front end loader before that kind of adventure would have some appeal ... not in this life time I guess.

Considering the skill required to do those things, I will be able to start in 15-20 years. On muzzleloaders.
