I have just purchased this new MR-X 45 cal from Midway. Put a decent scope on it and have been slamming 8 inch ceramic tiles at 250 yards all day long. I have not put on paper at that distance but at 100 yards I am shooting 3/4 inch groups with Shooters world loose powder. BH209 is 90 dollars for 8 oz here I'm not paying that. I tried pyrodex and it did not like that as well. T7 was a about 70 fps faster but the ole crud ring came back. Shooting the hornady xtp, and Barnes bullets and it shoots well. This is new shooter for me. I also have the Optima V2 and the Wolf and they are good 50 cals but I have no regrets with the 45 cal. Just a little tough finding bullets at a decent price. Hopes this helps anyone with concerns. Stay safe
Nice, mine shoots very accurately as well. I have been using BH209 because I got some in 2021 for $40 a 10oz bottle. I have 2.5 remaining. It’s not a gun I’ll be shooting a lot so that should last me a few years at least

IMO don't shot the BH209. Our scheels is carrying the Shooters World black and it shoots clean and is around 23.99 a pound and is only on average 70 fps slower than T7 with no crud ring using the cheddite primers
. I am telling you it is great stuff

So I didn't want to admit it but I ordered the Mossy Oak Bottomland 45 cal MRX from Midway for $431. I am a sucker for bottomland camo and just couldn't resist it any longer and had to find out what I would get, good or bad. Well, it turned out good for me, so far. Received the MRX today and I am very surprised and pleased. Was expecting to have to send it to CVA for refund or replacement but that is not the case. Fit and finish are just fine and no off center forearm and the rifling is clean, smooth and no chatter marks. My plans are to put a 3-9×40 VX-1 I have on the existing mount and will look at other bases just in case this one cracks. Hopefully it'll shoot well.20230125_204605.jpg 20230125_204441.jpg 20230125_204539.jpg 20230125_204628.jpg 20230125_204632.jpg 20230125_204643.jpg

I sure thought about trying one of these rifles I've hesitated because I cannot find a single post on it,, and little by little I'm beginning to not trust the Italian rifle makers with CVA it's pretty much become a role of the dice sometimes you get a good rifle and sometimes you don't. You would think as many shooters as there are on Modern Muzzleloader we would get a post about one of them

With all the negative crap that I constantly keep hearing about the new line of Accura's & Paramounts, IDK whether to say " congrats or I'm sorry ".
With that price, again, pending on how the guns quality is, IDK whether to say " killer deal or what a complete waste of 431.00 ".
It is a very nice looking gun fur sure.
I do wish the best for you & that the gun turns out to be the shooter you want it to be. Keep us posted about it.

Ninering62,

I agree with you, not sure whether to cry or laugh but manufacturing wise it's clean and no issues with the bore I can see. How it shoots will be the test that has to wait until spring. I only plan on using sabots with it for hunting and maybe some tests on paper with older 45cal powerbelts and some maxi balls.

Time will tell!
John
