Ok I just noticed in my Firearms database for PointBlank v2.0 I'm missing all of the muzzle loader calibers. Anyone have a list of just what calibers are available for muzzle loaders?

I know there is a .32, .40, .45, .50, .52, .54, .58? Larger? Smaller?

Hmmm now that I think about it I'll need them for shotguns as well (gauges).

There's also a .36 cal. around too. Not sure about .38 but there are a few larger than .54, good luck.

You hit the major ones, add .36 .56 .62 .69 .75 for commercially available calibers. A couple of guys I used to run into at the muzzleloader competitions had .25 calibers, but they were custom jobs. Likewise many of the old muzzleloaders had nonstandard bore sizes and were supplied with ball mold.

Dallan, looks like you hit most of them. I'd add .69 caliber, like the old Brown Bess was.

The English "brown bess" was .75 caliber, the French Charleville was .69 caliber.
