    stock, for now
    ive got an older TC(maybe 6 years old) and it rusts constantly. Even in the safe(with a dehumidifier,(SP) the barrel rusts.

    I havent even looked at the new models, but good luck:)

    The only problem with blackpowder rifles is that blackpowder is much more corrosive than smokeless. Even with a stainless barrel, it requires much more work, usually in vain, to stop it from rusting. Do you want it for the muzzle loading or for the smoke and noise of black powder?

    I remember Hodgdon came out with a blackpowder substitute a few years ago that was supposed to be non-corrosive but wasn't quite as smokey as blackpowder. Might be worth looking into.

    Try using the Triple 7 powder, it cleans up much easier and is less corrosive. When i store my guns I always coat them with bore butter and it seems to keep the rust down.
