New inline muzzleloaders

I'm in the market for my first in-line muzzloader. I will use it on mule deer and elk. My price range is up to 350 dollars. Any suggestions on quality guns in this range. Accuracy, ease of cleaning, reliability? Thanks in advance.

New inline muzzleloaders

I have a Remington Genesis and love it. I started shooting Powerbelts and Pyrodex and found it extremely accurate. I only use 100 Gr of powder and think that is plenty for my needs. I think for Elk, .50cal is a must and possibly a 150 charge. I would also check the local laws and see what the regs are for ML in the areas you want to hunt. That may influence your purchase.

Good luck...

I had a CVA buckhorn 209 magnum in .50. it was a good shooter but the caping and decaping with these tool was too much grabbing around for me, so I sold it and have now ordered a CVA wolf 209 in .50 which I will use with Pyrodex pellets.

Regards

I don'y have a lot of experience with different M/L. I started with a Traditions Pursuit Lt (Break action) and have had no regrets at all. It was quitre affordable, the rifle and accoutrement kit total came to $350.00.

New inline muzzleloaders

I shoot a CVA Optima and love it. Shoots great and very easy to clean. The only problem I have ever had with it is the pin in the front sight came loose during deer season this year. I contacted CVA via e-mail and they asked for my address so they can send me a new sight. No questions asked and no charge.
