CVA Optima Pro. It is accurate with open sights. Although sights seem small it enables you to aim clearly. 3" groups at 100 yards are easy to obtain. You can also load up to 150 grain of black powder. If you prefer to use a rifle scope, just get a mount for a Rem Model 700 which is available also anywhere. You can use power belt bullets or sabbots. They both shoot accurately.
CVA Optima pro
CVA Kodiak Pro Magnum. They can be shot wiht magnum charges. I have killed deer out to 175 yards with one shot with a lung shot with my 45. caliber in full camo. My gun and Barska scope cost about 250 dollars. Powerbelts shoot well out of it with up to 150 grains of powder, i reccomend triple seven wich shoots well out of my gun though not my uncles so much. Just experiment and you will find what is best for you. I would pretty much reccomend any CVA gun. My dad has a CVA Optima and he can shoot just as accurately as me though i have an extra 20-30 yards of range with my lighter bullet and 150 grains of powder. i would just look for sales like mine. I got almost 100 dollars off mine with a sale from dunhams. Look around. Hope this helps.
If it is confusing, it was about 175 dollars for the gun and 80 dollars for the scope, all camo scope and gun.
I agree with KMB33,although I got the .45 caliber.
i like my traditons deerhunter muzzle loader. it was 300
sorry on second thought it was more around 190
I agree w/ above. CVA and Traditions both make some dandy smoke-poles at very affordable prices.
T/C "Black Diamond" with a scope will run around that.
Good luck and good hunting.
The T/C black diamond is a good gun I used to use one before I bought my Omega but I am not sure of the price.
Im going to go with CVA..just picked one up for my dad last christmas
Agreed with KMB33 and + 1 for you sir!!!
