For a more traditional/really tuff hunting gun without a scope, should I get a muzzleloader or a 30-30? This is for big game.

      Well I guess it would soulely depend on where you are going to hunt first off. And secondly what you really consider "Traditionly" You already stated it would not be a inline muzzle loader which is correct. In Pa the muzzle loading season only allows Flint Lock muzzle loaders. As far as a truely traditional firearm would be concerned the Winchester Mod 1894 pre 1964 would be as about traditional a deer rifle as one could get. It has probably taken more big game animals then any other firearm in existance. Including some of those listed above. The Savage 99 in 300 savage is one of the all time greatest, but it still falls behind the model 94 in .30/30,.30WCF or the 7.62x51R,, not to be confused with the 7.62x51 nato.. My vote would be a pre 1964 Model 1894 winchester in 30/30..
