thinking about a muzzleloader...

I've been kicking around the idea of picking up a muzzle loader and getting some practice in with it during the springtime...never shot one. I've been kind of checking out the T/C Omega(I believe) .50, Cabela's has some really nice guns scoped or just the gun...a few local shops have decent prices on the kit(right around $300 for everything you need to start shooting).

Any opinions on T/Cs, CVAs, or Knights?

Traditions

.. relatively cheap, easy to clean (break action), accurate, can handle the 150gr pyrodex loads, etc

fun to shoot, makes a big bang, lots of smoke....you know, all the fun stuff
