Didn't vote because I like them both, I chose in-line for my hunting rifle because of the weather conditions I face up here in the north woods and wanted to ensure a shot. It's still a muzzle loader and it still has iron sights and in-lines were patented way back in 1808 by Jean Samuel Pauly. He was also instrumental in helping to create the first self contained cartridge. Hawg is gonna hurt me but the in-line does have a long and honorable history.
