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

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
