To be creative, make it with a "chamber" that is a little larger than the bore, and do the venturi shoulder.  I know, the pellets would rattle a little, if you use them.  Make it a big enough chamber to hold four pellets.  Make the ramrod so it will only push the bullet in up to the chamber.  Make it strong enough, where you could put smokeless powder in it as well, like the old Savage inline did.  It would "shoot flatter and hit harder" for sure.  MM

Make it smokeless and use cut down .257/.270/7mm wby mag brass as the ignition. Make it in Vanguard series to make it less expensive. I would rather have a sabotless one but if Weatherby made one that I had to use a sabot I would still buy one. When I had my .300 wby mag I came very close to having it converted to a smokeless muzzleloader. I would of been the only one on the block with a Weatherby muzzleloader.
