    Depends how 'into' your ML your going to be. If it's just to enjoy the Dec hunt..then any of the $300-$500 ML Cabela's sell will fit the bill. They have good sales. Just pick an inline (removable plug). Most are 28" and will shoot 1" MOA at 100 yds right out of the box.

    CVAs seem to be popular. don't hear to many bad things about them.

    My concern would be this way of loading. This is like buying the new unproven cartridge, but it is a rimfire, and you cannot reload for it. If this thing dies then you are SOL and have a $1500 paperweight.

    Proven to be safe but not proven as a viable commercial round. The 5mm Remington Rimfire Magnum is one of those that failed. The entire Ertonx line, they were suppose to be the big new thing in ignition, it died and now the guns are useless as primers are nowhere to be found.

    Definitely a concern, one of the reasons I was asking was to see how popular they where. Price is down to the 700-900 range. Still pricey but not 1500.

    Awwww ..commercially viable

    At $700 at Cabela's, that isn't outrageous if it's an accurate ML. But $35 for 10 shots would have to drop at least 50% to make it viable on the market.

    Does not seem like it has taken off and the limited manufacture of black powder charge is a serious concern.

    The price per shot does not bother me. I have shot 3-4 times in a muzzleloader season just to empty my rifle as I did not trust the charge.

    Hate to admit it but I shoot my .22 and at work to keep my edge. Would hopefully shoot 4 shots a year with the new ML. 3 sighting in, one for meat.

    Since I found a good consistent recipe for my "cheaper" ML a while ago, I have been taken only 2 or 3 shots per year with it: 1 or 2 shots before the ML season to confirm it holds its zero (1.5 MOA max.), and then 1 shot for meat.
    As such, I see absolutely no need to waste any of my time & $ looking into so-called "game changers".

    My preference in firearms changed a few years back. I now use my MLs far more than my centerfires.

    I went thru almost 4 lbs of powder last summer between my .45 Kentucky, inline .50 and my .58 Musketoon. Compare to about 2 boxes of ammo thru my 6.5 and .303.

    While somewhat intrigued to play with the new 'NitroFire' it would be better suited to guys who only only gear up on the Sunday afternoon before the hunt and spending $35 for the ammo isn't a big deal.

    It sure makes it easier to 'make safe' after the day
