you still using those old pellets or have bought new ones each year?

You've replaced the scope so im wondering if its your scope mount/rings giving you all the grief.
i usually buy 2 boxes of new powder each year,ive checked the mounts and rings for cracks or stress or loose screws and made sure everything was tight but it is a possibility.....

normally it can be cheap rings giving you head aches. Either way though, my offer on checking your rifle out and going through it, is still available at any time.

My brother in law has as CVA Accura. He is shooting 150 gr of 777 with 250 gr shockwaves, and it shoots very good. This is the same load that I am shooting out of my Encore.

I would replace the rings and mounts on your gun and clean it with the solvent that is supposed to clean the plastic residue from sabots and start over. It doesn't make sense that a "shooter" all of the sudden goes crazy without some special cause. It has got to either be something with the mounts or some type of residue somewhere from cleaning. Just my $0.02 worth.

Muzzleloader hunting is sometimes a love/hate relationship as some of them can be very picky on what they want to shoot but still my favorite weapon to pack in the woods. There is just something about the smoke rolling and the smell of blackpowder on a cold November morning. That is why I still shoot blackpowder and have yet to go to smokeless.
