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!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
