Got out to 100 yards today. EXTREMELY happy with the way this lil $190 Wolf does with the 300gr PT Gold!

CVA Wolf
Harvester Scorpion PT Gold 300 grain
Harvester E-Z load sabots
110gr Blackhorn209
CCI 209 Magnum primers

Shot with and without cool down just to see how much it affects the group. One thing for certain, that blued barrel heats up pretty hard quickly after a few shots! It was starting to get uncomfortable at one point. I still have some FINE tuning to do with it but that will only take a few more shots and then shes ready for 150 yards. I think its safe to say that the Wolf and Scorpion PT Gold is a winner as far as accuracy goes!


Cooling down with the breech plug out.

I got one for Christmas last year and it is a great gun. I use 245 Powerbelts with 100 grain pellets. What size projectiles are you using? Man I can't wait to put down my first deer with it.

I may just have to give those a shot. Do you know if using 100 grains of 777 pellets would change the grouping a lot?

I shot probably close to 1,000 rounds on the factory QRBP but I do use a metric washer to prevent primer blow by and that helps GREATLY. I run a BH209 plug now just for added insurance.

Shot it today while making a how to video and accuracy is SUPERB with 100gr T7 pellets, Harvester EZ load sabot and the 300gr PT Gold. Swabbing between shots was a must otherwise my range rod was 3" off the charge. Typical of T7.

So are you saying that the projectile won't seat on the charge? My apologizes if this seems a dumb question but I am new to Muzzle loading.
PS Thank you for trying that out.

Not a dumb question at all. I actually made a video on this event for the new shooters, just trying to upload it, thats the pain in the rear end with satellite internet and youtubes upload being so slow.

Any time you shoot T7, American Pioneer, Black MZ, Real black powder, Pyrodex, SWAB between shots! These inlines shoot super clean and that heat from the primer leaves a hard baked on fouling that catches the bullet and gives the false impression to the shooter, that the bullet is seated. That basically means, the bullet is caught up on fouling and not fully seated on the powder charge.

So this would cause the projectile to have less force and drop sooner? Once uploaded can you get the link?

that, along with either bulging your barrel or exploding it since theres such a big gap between the projectile and powder.

No problem on the video! I'll pm it to you as well to make sure you get it.

sent in a cva blazer for repair and due to them not making that model, they sent this one as a replacement.

http://www.budsgunshop.com or http://www.rrarms.com usually have good prices on these guns.

if someone shoots one without it being fully seated, does it always bulge the barrel or cause an issue? or if it was just a 1 time occurence and things look ok, is it usually fine?

When you load your CVA Wolf or any other muzzleloader for the first time mark your ram rod after you are sure you have your round seated properly. If you have shot the muzzleloader clean it and seat your round and mark your rod. Marking your rod assures you that you have a proper seat each time you load up.

Now I have heard it rumored that Muzzle Season starts this Saturday. Nov. 9th. I heard the same rumors about about last Saturday. I will be checkin the regs every day until Nov. 9th. Then I am takin my Wolf to the woods.

use a piece of tape to mark your ramrod when dialing in loads for your new muzzleloader. Never scratch it until you are 100% certain that is the load you will be using. Otherwise you just a million scratches and wont have a clue to what the actual one is.
