Did a bunch of research on all the new muzzle loaders on the market now. Still sorry I sold my Savage ml 10. Looked seriously at the new Remington bolt action but by the time you put bases rings and a scope on it you are getting close to 12 lbs. Too heavy for this 66 yr old. Lol. Big time accurate rifle. Don't like Traditionsor T Center. Ended up buying a new CVA Accura mr. Decided on this 25" barrel black nitride coated little beauty. Came with a scope and case for the price of the bare rifle. It has a 3 x 9 40mm Konus scope. I have a Vortex cross fire 1 x 4 scope that is wayyyy higher end so will switch it out. Have most of my stuff together. Will shoot Blackhorn 209 powder , CCI 209 magnum primers and Barnes 290 gr T Ez bullets to start. Come on spring.
Chevy Trucks, Black Widow bows, Sako rifles and my grandkids.

Nice choice. Had one of the original MR's and I was very pleased with its performance.
