CVA Kodiak?? HELP A NEWBIE OUT

5 posts in this topic

I'm new to muzzleloading and could use all the advice possible. I am looking at the CVA Kodiak Magnium .50 cal. Does anyone have any experience using these, good or bad? I am also planning on shooting Triple Se7en and AeroTip bullets. I will be using this in MN for whitetails, so a scope is out of the question.

Thanks

A couple years ago it was ranked #1 Muzzleloader on the market. If your looking to get into black powder go with a kodiak or the omega from Thompson Center. Whenever looking at the guns make sure it's a 209 primer which is a lot easier then the disk types. I am shooting Triple Seven powder and I don't notice a difference between that and the pyrdoex so I don't know if it is cleaner or not but get the 50 grain powder tablets and go from there. As for bullets haha. I've got 4 differnt types i'm playing with. Try some and see what works for ya. I'm shooting TC Shockwaves/Hornady's/Barnes/Powerbelt. I'm still trying to find out what my gun likes. But I would suggest a stainless barrel. Easier for clean up.

I bought a CVA Kodiak Pro Magnum two years ago and I like it. I got the stainless barrel also. I am still new the blackpowder scene but it performs great for me. I would like to put a scope on it and see how it shoots at longer ranges. Dont forget to season the barrel before you hunt with it. I shot about 75-100 ball and patches through it using just one 50 grain pellet each time. Good luck and have fun!

I have a Knight Revolution. Never had a problem with it and wouldn't trade it in for the world.

I have one and I really like it. It is real similar to a TC Omega but a little on the cheaperside (cost). Overall it has performed flawlessly for me!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
