Looking for a new muzzleloader

Discussion in 'Guns and Ammo' started by Onion, Oct 28, 2004.

  1. I am in the market for a new muzzleloader. I am limiting myself to $200 and need a .50 caliber (I already have a pile of .50 ammo and gear). Looking right now at the CVA Optima 209 and Traditions Evolution or the CVA hunterbolt/firebolt.

    Anyone have any thoughts about any of these guns?

    Man, the Wallmart in Beavercreek had a Winchester .45 cal for $127 on clearance. I think its gone now though.

    I have a traditions 50 Cal. in-line. I have a 3x9 scope on it also, I paid less than $200.00 for the entire outfit at Vances. Buckeye outdoors also has the same prices.

    Stick with a brand name. Thompson, Traditions, CVA are a good choice. I even have a Cabelas 50 cal Hawkins style that's a good shooter. Just a little heavy. First doe I took with that gun was at 125 yds. No bull, I stepped it off twice. I couldn't believe it. Double lung with a 350 grain slug, open sites. I was impressed.

    BPS is running a special on a "new frontier" .50 for under 100$. Break-open action and 209 ignition.

    I'm not even aware of any cheap or generic muzzleloaders.
