Colorado Muzzy Hunters

Postby ncook05 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:28 am

I just recently learned of the regulations on Muzzleloading in Colorado and was just curious as to what make or manufacturer of muzzleloaders everybody is shooting?

I'm waiting for the new CVA Mountain Rifle to show up.

Thanks for the response! I have heard that CVA shoots conicles pretty accurately and that they are a very reliable guns. I do not really know a whole lot about muzzleloading so I was just trying to get a feel for what others were hunting with here in Colorado.

Which CVA do you think shoots conicles the best out of the ones you own?

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it! It is always a tough decision when you are making an expensive purchase an read mixed reviews about which muzzleloaders shoot conicals well and which don't.

Sometimes the TC muzzleloaders have a hard time with conicals. TC will even tell you their guns are made for sabots.

CVA guns are the opposite. The same company that owns CVA owns Powerbelt too. So, they like conicals. Not just PB's, but most all conicals. They also shoot sabots well too if that's what you like. The Bergara barrels that CVA uses are really hard to beat. Very accurate.

I shoot an Austin & Halleck, but they went out of business. Beautiful guns though.

I was really surprised the first time heard TCs don't shoot cinicals well, just because they are known for their muzzleloaders. Sabots are not legal in Colorado though, are they? Sorry about all the questions, just trying to gain as much knowledge as possible before I make a purchase.

I may have to look into a used Austin & Halleck. I have also heard that White made some great muzzleloaders but from what I understand they are no longer in business either.
