I'm really interested in getting into muzzleloaders. Specifically percussion cap style. Couple questions,, a 38 caliber is the smallest I can use on deer here in Ohio, can I use this on squirrel without blowing them into smithereens? I'm guessing I'm going to have to get two calibers, a 32 for squirrels and a 50 for deer, more the merrier right? I want to cast my own round balls and at some point experiment with making my own powder.

Can anyone recommend a good kit and or supplier for lead, powder and such? I think a kit would be a fun build.

People use 40 caliber for both with much success. If you enjoy them like I do save your pennies for a smoothbore flinter in .62 and you can add turkey to the list.
