The WHITE Model 98 ELITE HUNTER.
(no longer in production)
Doc White, who originally designed the old White Super 91, redesigned the 91 into the superb M98 Elite Hunter. He produced a functionally elegant hunting rifle that was the best of its kind. The Elite hunter retained the corrosion resistant stainless steel, quick loading , marvelous handling and fearsome power of the old 91.
The White Model 98 Elite Hunter featured: Functional Elegance beyond compare. Still the fastest loading and hardest hitting muzzleloading rifle available. Designed specifically for slip-fit White PowerPunch bullets, the old White Super Slugs work too. Most hunters can reload and shoot in 20 seconds or less with little practice. More than 1000 ft lbs energy at 200 yards. The big .504 with 600 grain PowerPunch bullets produce well over 1600 ft lbs at 200 yards for really big game. Also superbly accurate with White’s saboted 320 or 435 grain .504 caliber PowerStar, and the 350 grain saboted 45 caliber PowerStar plus competing sabots and bullets by others.
Elegant classic lines with egg-shell stainless finish, broad English butt, (easy for right or left hand shooter) and thick elastomeric recoil pad, Handles quick, balances well, and was steady for wild country shooting.
Simple, easy to use pull-cock action with cocking knob much like that on the ’03 Springfield, no-tool field takedown- the hammer housing comes out of the action as a unit. Adjustable trigger set at 3 1/2 lbs at the factory.
Double safety system with primary safety on the trigger and quiet super-safe twist-lock safety on the pullcock.
Drilled and tapped for peep and scope, with “fit any ‘scope” Weaver style steel extended bases optionally available.
Aircraft aluminum ramrod with built in cleaning jag and bullet puller.
New Doc-designed straight taper barrel with narrow land, wide groove, truncated rifling in a 24 inch barrel. Two ramrod ferrules for quick ramrod return, counterbored slightly funneled muzzle for easy loading.
Use up to 150 grains equivalent of Pyrodex (P is preferred), 150 grains of Hodgden’s Triple 777 or three 50 grain Pellets for maximum power.
New steel mounted fiber-optic sights, two green dots rear, single red dot front for great dim light performance.
White #0001 Stainless M98 Elite Hunter With Black Fiber-composite stock, scope on Warne QD mounts, musket cap breechplug, aircraft Aluminum ramrod with bullet pulling screw under cleaning jag on ramrod end, White Adjustable sling, butt-stock mounted Quick-Charger carrier and back-up fiber-optik open sights. This is Doc’s personal M98, fixed up just the way he likes it for big, dangerous critters. Note that the ramrod sticks out a little past the barrel end. That’s so it can be grabbed easily when he is in a real hurry. Combine the rifle with a capper slung around the neck and the result is 15 second reloads.
