100 grains triple seven, 240 grain pistol bullet and a T/C sabot and a Cheddite 209 primer. (they are waterproof)
1 1/2 at 100 yards. Great shooting guns.

are your powerbelts the hollow tip 245 grain?

Ill be starting off with the powerbelt 245 hollowtips
and triple 7 powder and I think there tc 209 primers. Ive got lots of practice to do before the early muzzleloader season this fall.

I use 245 gr powerbelts,triple seven 209 primers and 100 gr triple seven pellets. For a cheaper gun shoots extremely well.

- 245 ballistic tip powerbelts
- 100 grains of pyrodex
- open sights

took one shot at one deer "turkey style" (wind was bad from the tree stand, so i sat on the ground with the wind in my favor). I have never hit an animal with a firearm as hard as I hit the doe I shot with that CVA Wolf. Good, cheap, effective muzzleloader.

got everything ordered from cabelas, everything should be here sometime during next week. got the cva wolf on sale.
ordered some hornday high speed low drag sabots, triple se7en magnum pellets, and cci magnum 209 primers. I figured if the hornaday sabots dont work well oh well since we already have alot of powerbelts.

cant wait to get it on target next week.
