CVA Wolf

Does anyone know the rate of twist for the CVA Wolf inline muzzle loader? I can't find it in any of the advertisements for the gun.Not even CVA's.

Thanks.The only one I've seen has a 24" barrel.But that's cool.I think it is 28".Thanks again.Are you a big black powder shooter?Have you heard of the Black Widow Bullet Company?I'm trying to find anyone or a number of people who have experience with their Venom bullets.

Re: CVA Wolf

All wolf's used a 24" barrel with 1:28 twist.

blackwidow company basically is a copy of the tc maxiball, but blackwidow uses a ballistic tip for eye candy, much better bullets out there.

I have the new CVA Wolf with the QRBP. Excellent shooting rifle with a great trigger as well. Thumbs up

Re: CVA Wolf

I was looking at the black Widow bullets Because of their size, 275 grains in 50 caliber. I shoot a 50 caliber Thompson Center Hawkins with 370 grain Maxi Balls and besides the fact that I think it's a bit of an over kill, I was looking for a little better performance down range,less drop that is. I will only take shots with them out to about 75 yards.I have also been skeptical of sabots.I just don't trust them and prefer a full bore size bullet.

Re: CVA Wolf

That is right on barrel length it has a 24" and his Acura has a 26". Don't know any thing about the blackwidow co, but I do agree about the full bore bullets.
I shoot an encore and so far the 270 -300 gr PBs shoot the best out to 200 yards. I don't like the way they expand differently at different yardages. I am looking at the Hornaday 50 cal fpb in 300gr and the 300gr saber-tooth, but haven't got to shoot ether one yet.

Re: CVA Wolf

dont bother with the Harvester Sabertooth conicals, those suckers are almost as bad as powerbelts when they open up. More like over expand/pancakes.

Re: CVA Wolf

I think I'll get some Black Widow Bullets and try them. If I do I'll let you know how they fly.The only place I've seen them is on line so it may take a while.

Re: CVA Wolf

The Black Widow Bullets are great for the .58. They are devastating on deer!!! http://www.biggamehunt.net/forums/posting.php?mode=reply&f=31&t=26380&si... shoot a T/C Firehawk and they are the most accurate bullets that I have shot with that rifle. I am going to try them with my .50 and will post the results.
