CVA Buckhorn .50 Caliber Magnum In-line Muzzleloader

CVA BUCKHORN .50 CALIBER MAGNUM
IN-LINE MUZZLELOADER



I bought this CVA Buckhorn 50-caliber Magnum (whatever magnum in a muzzleloader means ... just an advertisiing catch word) In-line Muzzleloader as an entry level rifle as I had not muzzleloader hunted before and at $129 new in the box I thought it was worth considering. I was not expecting great things for the price really but have been pleasantly surprised with the accuracy at the range. I loaded this with 2 x 50/50 Hodgdon Pyrodex pellets and a Hornady 50-caliber Sabot with 45-caliber 300 grain SST-ML bullet and a Remington 209 primer. The manual states 150 grains of black powder can be used, personally there is NO WAY, I say again, NO WAY I would ever go over 100 grains. Using the adjustable fiber sights it was able to put in a tight clover leaf of three rounds at 25 yards. I had a Bushnell Banner 1.5-4.5 x 32 shotgun/blackpowder circle-x scope lying around so I mounted it and zeroed at 50 yards was able to put in a 1" group of three rounds ... hmmm, that should work for deer hunting come the 2006 muzzleloader season.

Cleaning is a breeze and overall maintenance is simple enough for even the most mechanically challenged. Field stripping for cleaning is simple and all tools are included in the box. They include:

Allen wrench (for removing stock, trigger group and end plug)
Breech plug/nipple removal tool
209 primer capper/decapper tool

Overall a very effective muzzleloader for deer hunting with a price tag that definitely should not break the budget of even the most frugal amongst us. I can't wait to use it for the Illinois muzzleloader season in 2006. I have the tags, now all I need is a couple of deer in the woods within range. And as it turned out a scrubby 8 point and a doe did come within range in the 2006 muzzleloader season with devastating results for the deer. Pictures can be seen here.
