Best bullet for CVA?

Recommended Posts

JBone

I bought a CVA Kodiak Pro Magnum Muzzleloader this year. What would you guys recommend I use for bullet and powder?

What about 100 grain or 150 grain powder?

What grain bullet for whitetail deer?

I use 295 grain powerbelt bullets with 100 grains of triple 7 pellets. This summer I intend to shoot some of the new Hornady FBP bullets to see how the loading and accuracy is.

i have had really good luck with 275 grain hollow point powerbelt bullets with 100 grain triple 7 pellets. i think i will shoot a heavier grain bullet for bear next fall.

it's all trial and error to see what the rifle likes, you could have two of the same models and they both may like a different setup. i've found i like the trip7 pellets better than the pyrodex they seem to be alot cleaner in my experience. run a wet then a dry patch after every shot, inconsistant cleaning of the barrel will give you bad results for sighting in or patterning a certain type of bullet.

I have a CVA Wolf- and I use 270 grain Power bellet Platiums. And I wouldn't change for anything. I shot those with 150 grain (pellet form powder) triple 7. I have shot 5 deer with that combination (3 bucks) and all of the bucks have drop straight to the ground (one was 120+yds). I can group a 3 inchg circle at 90 yards (open sights... its the gun not me) I first used the bullets that came with the kit and it grouped like [PoorWordUsage], bought those platiums and never moved my sights and grouped really well. Platiums are the way to go(my opinion)

Glen S, I use to use the Wolf and I agree that it is a great gun, I gave it to my old man this year and bought the CVA Kodiak and so far has not compared with the Wolf.

By the way that is a beastly load,150grain powder-270grain bullet

      What a difference a couple of warmer days make.  I had great snowmobile travel conditions on Burntside on Tuesday.

      I know it was not Vermilion but I was on Burntside Sunday-Wednesday and found the travel conditions great with the snowmobile.  Had 30" of ice, but the top 10-12" was white and there was a 1" water layer under 2" of top white ice.  The top was softening up when we left Wednesday afternoon.  The bottom 2' of ice was nice and clear, so it will be solid for a while.  If they get cold weather up there for a few days, the lakes could be very good traveling for most vehicles since the deep snow has flattened and most of the water on top has drained or evaporated.  If it gets cold, I may be back up on Burntside for the end of March.

      Can someone please post pics and or videos of the Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught by @DTro. The story about the aftermath would be cool too.   How is the St. Croix River looking? Anyone out fishing it?   Fishing reports please?

      I have not seen any, but I am not out in the country much yet. I need the snow to drop quite aways before I can get back to most of my spots.

      Spring is no slouch for activities though! Here’s a list of (fun) possibilities for even this weekend:   Sapping Shooting - rifle range Shed hunting  Still enough ice to fish through Some open water to cast to Still ‘Nuff night light yet for yotes  Scout for turkeys Snow goose season is open too   It’s too bad though I have to include some other stuff for the weekend:   Helping move someone Taxes Annual files cleaning HVAC maintenance  Some catching up at work Snow plow repair/maintenance   At least I can count on getting stuff from BOTH sides accomplished!

      I ran into a couple guys at the gas station when getting minnows today and we started chatting about this.For access to these lakes without an inspection they said this is what you want to do-Have someone who isnt going fishing come with you and launch your boat they drive away with truck and trailer and come pick you up later.Not a great option for all but if you live nearby the restricted lakes they said this works.I like their style

      March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight.  They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.   There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet.  Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.

      Any fishing reports?   With this warmer weather, has anyone been out?   What are the ice conditions in the Bemidji area?
