Re: which inline muzzleloader

Apex is an excellent shooter but a bit hefty due to the SS frame.

I highly recommend the Accura V2 or even the Optima. I have 2 of the new Optima's and they are my favorite. Triggers both break at 2lbs.

For the price, the CVA Wolf is a little tackdriver. Not pretty, but is shoots great and always goes bang.

I really like the CVA Wolf, S/S camo. I have the Optima S/S camo good shooters for the price.

Re: which inline muzzleloader

Over the years ive owned a CVA Firebolt(old bolt plunger style) & a CVA Optima Pro and they were both good shooters and performed well. Since then I went to a TC Pro Hunter. More initial investment but a proven rock solid platform. Love it. Likely will be the last inline I will ever buy.

Agreed! I have owend 5 or 6 in lines from the OLD Ranger (anybody remember those?) up through the Savage bolt guns. I still have a first run Black Diamond XR that shoots great and is one of the best plunger fire style inlines ever made imo and while I still fire her up from time to time, my Pro Hunter is just so much better in every aspect except for accuracy...that XR can SHOOT!!

Re: which inline muzzleloader

I have the TC Triumph and love it. The one with black comp stock and weather shield barrell. It is a tack driver,easy to clean and a joy to shoot.Goodluck with your purchase.

Re: which inline muzzleloader

I agree with dave on his choice of the Triumph.Just make sure you stick with Blackhorn 209 powder.It really is amazing when it comes to accuracy,loading continuosly and clean up.The selection is your choice but stick with BH 209 for any inline you choose.

I have a T/C Omega .50 caliber inline and it has become my favorite all around deer rifle.
