Re: 240g XTP Mag Captured Twice

I'm glad you posted this. I tried them in my CVA Wolf today after hearing good things about them. They gave me 1" groups at 100 yards. I was curious to see how they perform on game, now I know. Thanks for sharing!!!

Re: CVA WOLF

You're on the right track teaching someone with the Wolf. Mine gives me 1" groups at 100 yards with the load listed below.

Re: Muzzle loader recommendations

The CVA Wolf, Traditions Buckstalker, and TC Impact are the "economy" muzzleloaders on the market.

Re: Realistic Accuracy

With the load listed in my signature I would feel very comfortable taking a shot out to 175 yards. I have it sighted in 3" high at 100 yards and it shoots 1" groups. I agree with you in that with open sights I wouldn't shoot past 100. Hope this helps.

Re: accurate loads for CVA Optima

I no longer have it but when I had my Optima I could shoot 1 1/2" groups at 100 yards with the following load:

2 White Hots pellets
Remington KleanBore primers
300 grain Hornady SST-ML High Speed/Low Drag sabots

Give it a try, good luck.

Re: Need help deciding on a scope

Of the models you have listed I'd definitely go with the Nikon ProStaff. I have one on my .30-06 and absolutely love it. I'm not a fan of BDC style reticles. For what it's worth both of my MLs have Traditions 3-9X40 scopes on them and they both shoot 1" groups. They were $75 right from Traditio...

Hot Weather Point of Impact Advice

Early muzzleloader season here in PA is 3 months away. If I sight in my MLs now in the am when it's 70-75*, how will that affect my POI when it's in the 60s in October or in cold weather during the regular gun season, say 25-45 degrees? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Omega Reply

They are basically the same. The Z5 version is a no frills gun. The regular Omega, to my understanding, has a fluted barrel option and comes with a wide variety of stock and finish options. The Z5 is a black stock/blued barrel gun. It sounds more like you have the regular Omega. Did you buy it new o...

Welcome to the sport and to the site. When sighting in any of my guns, centerfire or ML, I always put the scope on 9X for the exact reason you said. Normally once I get the shot where I want it I'll just go home but once in a while just to do some more shooting I'll set it at 4X and fire a couple ro...

I like Bushnell Banner scopes but the Bushnell Trophy XLT Bone Collector that Waddell and T-Bone advertise is junk. I got one a few years ago for a centerfire gun and ran out of adjustment. Cabela's took it back and I got something else. I stayed away from them until this year. I had one mounted on ...
