muzzleloader

  1. Pistol Permits
    I'm not sure if the serial number is the one stamped on the frame forward of the trigger guard (it's a muzzle loader). I bought it years ago, but I didn't think I was going to actually use it, but now I think I'd like to. I never got any real documents for it from the seller, which was cabela's...
  2. Black Powder Guns
    This rifle was purchased at a pawnshop for $100. It is short enough to use as a "canoe gun" as one can reload it from a sitting position. It's also cheap enough that I won't cry a river from losing it if the canoe were to tip over. My intention was to acquire an inexpensive rifle for loaning out...
  3. Black Powder Guns
    Am I getting into muzzleloading this year. I just picked up a cva optima in 50 cal. And was looking for some feedback on bullets other people have used. I did pick up some spit-fire tmz, they got good reviews but I hear they can be a pain to load. Thanks

  9. Black Powder Guns
    I hear people talking about shooting deer at 300+ yards with their muzzle loader, and see they have 4-12 power scopes and such. I have my muzzleloader sighted in a couple inches high at 100 and by 200 its falling fast, by 300 its several feet low. I know a few people who claim to have shot...

  11. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    OK, I have seen several different arguments on the idea of coverring a barrel when in the woods (using a finger cut off a plastic glove) to stop debris/snow/rain etc from enterring the barrel. It sounds like a great idea. My question is "How does it effect the ballistics, if at all, of the...

    Title should be Traditions, not Century. Anyone have any experience with this muzzleloader? I'm thinking of picking it up for the lone ML weekend of the season. I've never hunted ML, so I'm looking for a good entry-level one especially since I'll probably only use it during the one week of ML...
