Default New CVA Accura MR

I have been a died in wool side hammer muzzleloader hunter for 40 years. My old eyes are letting me down so I placed a bid of $299 on a new in the box Accura MR and won the bid. This makes me think it was suppose to happen.

What projectile do you guys recommend for whitetail deer out to 100 yards? I will most likely try Triple 7 powder as I have 3 unopened 1 pound containers. Unless for some reason it doesn't shoot well.

I've always shot the Hornady 240g XTP's in the green sabot in my 50 cals. These have shot and killed well in every muzzy I've ever tried them in. I shoot them over 2-50g Pyrodex pellets though.

I have one of them, I shoot the 250 power belt in mine with BP 209 powder 90 grns but you have to change the breach plug to a 209 breach plug as there is a delay on the breach plug that comes with it. I think you will love it, mine wears a Redfield 3x9x40 scope Have not killed anything with it as I got it just a couple days before our season closed.

100 grains by volume of 777 and a 300 grain saboted bullet is a good starting place.

Experiment with bullets down to 240-250 grain and change up your powder volume +/- to find what it likes best.

Most all my muzzies have liked to be swabbed between shots with 777 for the absolute best accuracy.

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.
