looking for best muzzleloader opinions

24 posts in this topic

I am looking at selling my TC to a buddy and getting a new one for muzzle loading this year.

I am wondering what people think the best option is, in their opinion, and why.

I don't want price to be the factor -- just the best overall gun.

What is the easiest to clean and keep clean, shoot consistently etc.

Thanks and all opinions are welcomed

Savage 10ML-II is the easiest to keep clean when using smokeless powder. You can leave it for weeks or months with no ill effects from powder residue corrosion if you use smokeless powder. With no black powder fouling build up you get consistant shot to shot accuracy. With the accutrigger on the new guns you get a real nice accurate muzzloader. One real nice thing about the noncorrosive powder is you can empty your gun after each day by firing it and load a fresh powder charge each day, and not have to clean it. No more excuses for a misfire due to leaving the powder in too long.

The law prohibiting smokeless powder was repealed this year.

If your muzzleloader is not marked as rated for smokeless powder, DO NOT USE IT.

It sounds like the TC Triumph is quite the weapon -- does anyone have that one?

I have a TC Triumph. Very easy gun to clean. Shoots nice tight groups. i took a 124lb doe with it last week at 85 yards, dropped it in its tracks. I also have the nikon omega scope on it.

I have had 2 cva's and they were good shooting guns but alot harder to clean. The triumph is so easy to clean with the speed breech.

I currently shoot an Omega and love it. If I was buying now though my first choice would be the Pro-Hunter and my second choice the Triumph and then the Omega. I firmly believe T/C is best when it comes to smokepoles. I had a CVA which was OK and my son has an Optima now, but they are definitely a lower end unit than a T/C.

I have a tradtion and a cva, the cva was a good gun, but just to many parts when it coems to cleaning it.

The Tradtion prisuit is a awesome gun. Built solid, easy cleaning, and built like a machine.

I have a CVA Kodiak and love it. Not sure that there are alot of parts though...remove the breach plug and clean the barrel. Pretty simple. 2 set screws and the barrel is off too. Shoots accurate and is very reasonably priced.

I also have a T/C Encore. Love it and would not use any thing else.

If money is not a issue I would get the T/C Encore Prohunter.

Eazy to clean, shoots well, Eazy to unload, and you can get other barrles for it.

I love the single shot set up. It puts a new challange in hunting.

I was told by a Guy from Cabela’s that a stainless steel barrel is the only way to go in Muzzle loader.

Easier cleaning, more accurate.

The Traditions Pursuit is in my scopes. I have been looking at that for a few weeks and doing some online research.

Looks to be a very highly liked gun for its price range.

$260 for stainless(or nickel I dont remember which it is).

I am definitely a muzzleloader novice. Just purchased a CVA Accura last week for $379. It has a special Bergera barrel that is guaranteed to be accurate. I have put three shots through it so far at 50 yards and other than adjusting the open sights the wrong direction on the third my shots were all no more than an inch and a half apart. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I was using Triple 7 pellets and the bullets that came in the CVA kit. Cleaning on the gun doesn't seem overly difficult either. The breech plug is easy to remove and as mentioned earlier 1 screw to remove the barrel. I got the black with Stainless barrel. Just couldn't spend the extra coin the T/C's seemed to be.

From another thread:

I bought a Remington Genesis Muzzleloader. Its not a bad gun, made by a good manufacturer, and has price tag right now of about $200. It is easy to clean and is really accurate, feels nice when I pull it up too. However, I think Remington is not going to make these anymore, even though they are still on their HSOforum. The prices of these guns have been basically cut in half, they must not be competing with the TC and everybody else. But if you want a good gun, and don't want to spend a lot of money, I would at least look at it.

    •   Attached is what you can get with the $40 package with SlingTV. Looks like they have history but not discovery. They also have $20 and $25 packages. The only thing I watched with any regularity when I had it was ESPN so I dropped it. 
    • I'm also a moderator, and just about to shut your  garbage mouth posts down. Go get yourself an education, which you still have not provided proof of, because there IS nothing to provide. You are nothing but an uneducated,  ill-advised rabble rouser.  I will warn you now to go read the rules of the site before your name-calling posts start to disappear in entirety.
    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
