    Default I want to buy a muzzleloader (I think)

    I have many rifles and shotguns but have never used a muzzle loader. I want to buy one for deer hunting but I know nothing about them.

    I don't want to spend a fortune on one because I will be using it a couple of days per year but it will be nice to have a break from bow when muzzleloader week comes around. My max budget is $350 with a scope/red dot. I see a couple in the for sale section that fit this price range. My priorities are 1 safety and easy to use 2 accurate to 100 yards 3 use the pellets rather than a powder measure.

    Can anyone offer any advice on what I should look for/give me muzzleloader 101.

    Look at the CVA Wolf. Great ML for the money. Affordable and accurate.

    That is what I have.... I bought mine on sale a few years ago for well under $300 scope included....

    Check out the thread below, it shows what bullets, power and primer I use...plus a lot of other info too.... At first it might seem a little intimidating but after trying it out a few times, it's easy.... The most important factor for me was to learn a loading routine that I can easily repeat.
    Watch some youtube videos and if you get a chance, go out and watch first hand how it is loaded... Like I said, easy when you know how...

    I had your thread in mind when I posted my reply, couldn't find it though...

    A couple of friends own those as well, all positive reviews. I have the older Optima Pro and have no complaints.

    The best advice that I can give is to shoulder an few different brands before you buy. I found the CVA product lines had a shorter stock than the Traditions line. I am tall with long arms and found the Pursuit pro sat/felt better than the Omega.

    All else being equal (they all shoot great out to 100 out of the box) ...then 'fit' is probably the most important consideration in IMHO...

    I went through this same learning process about 5 years ago. I bought a TC Impact and could not be more pleased with the gun. Cabelas has one with a Scope here: http://www.cabelas.ca/product/70161/...ope?CatId=2542

    I have not put a scope on mine yet - the fiber optic sights are very good.

    I use pyrodex pellets in mine so I don't have to worry about measuring powder.

    Hope this helps you!
