With the horse shit situation with ammo and reloading supplies, I was wondering if my next alternative to be able to afford some range time is a cap and ball revolver and muzzle loading rifle or 2. Used to have a .50 cal TC Hawken years ago and it was fun to shoot and pretty dang accurate.  A BP revolver might be fun to try.  At least I see a guy is selling a tool and supplies to make #11 caps from beer cans if those things skyrocket.  Haven't checked out black powder prices however.  They might have that supply all sewn up by now as well.

Here you go I just posted this in GD.
Muzzle loading rifle kit.

Blackpowder and the substitutes are getting hard to find.   Good luck on percussion caps.

I have seen some round balls though.

My Hawken was a TC kit.  Went together great.  The walnut stock that came with it was a beautiful piece of wood.  I had my blueing tanks set up when I built it so I ran the steel through there and it ended up looking better than any factory one I've seen.  I did look around for some black powder supplies and found black powder is as scarce as smokeless and caps, when available, are priced on the ridiculous side as well.  Here is an option -

But how much are they asking? For a while they were selling NIB for $500.
