Discussion Topic Update: On Smokeless Powder and Electronic Ignition

Early this week, we asked if in-lines should be legal muzzleloaders (see here). So let's take it a step further. From the Detroit Free Press:

_The other day a hunter was waxing lyrical about his new muzzleloading rifle, explaining how it didn't use black powder . . . but the same smokeless powder that propels bullets from modern centerfire rifles.

I don't think I'll ever forget the look of disbelief and shock that came over his face when I pointed out [that] it's not legal to use smokeless powder during the muzzleloader season in Michigan.

Another hunter called me a month ago and wanted to know what I thought of the new CVA muzzleloader that . . . has an electronic ignition system. . . . It [too is] not legal in this state . . . during the muzzleloader season._
