Traditions Yukon .50 cal. ?
Thought that I'd finally get into the 21st century with my very first ever inline ignition Muzzleloader but being that I have a few old designs that are fairly reliable, "50 year old Hawken .54, & a repro Zuave .58" I didn't want to spend a lot on a rifle that I would most likely shoot maybe 30 shots through it a year "after initial sighting in & all."
This would be a strictly a hunting weapon not a formal/informal target weapon.
My question is:
Is this rifle reliable, accurate enough for a humane kill shot out to 100 "or so" yards, & is there any quirks I should know about this weapon?
I know that I have one open on the Traker 209 but my wife showed me this one & I thought about getting some opinions on this one as well...

From what I've been reading, the same company makes the Traditions Yukon and the Remington Genesis, so they are essentially the same rifle made by the same Spanish company (Ardesa), except with different length barrels (24" vs. 28").
So, reviews would have a lot in common with both guns.
Here's some reviews for both:

Lastly, here's a discussion about various entry level inlines, and a look at the NEF Sidekick:
