Toby Bridges joins the Markesbery staff - I am proud to announce that I am now associated with a relative newcomer to the muzzleloading industry, Markesbery Muzzle Loaders, Inc.

Muzzle Loading enters a New Age -Muzzle loading technology heads for the 21st Century in high gear. In fast over the past decade, more advancements has been made with muzzle loading guns and loading components than with any other aspect of the shooting sports. And, it has been one of the fastest growing segments of the shooting and hunting sports.
Markesbery Muzzle Loaders gives new life to the old .45 caliber - During the 1960s and early 1970s, more muzzleloading rifles were manufactured...imported...and sold in .45 caliber than in any other caliber. Muzzleloader big game hunting was just getting a good start and the patched round ball was easily the number one loaded and fired projectile.
Selecting a Muzzleloading hunting Projectile - Todays muzzleloading big game hunter basically has three choices when selecting the type of projectile to be loaded and fired from a rifle of frontloading design...the patched round ball, a heavy pure lead bore-sized conical bullet, or a plastic sabot containing a modern jacketed pistol or all-copper bullet.
