Ok, so at the end of last season I bought a CVA wolf and plan to get it out this year for my first year muzzleloading. I plan to take it maybe tomorrow to a range and shoot it and sight it in if I put a scope on it. Do I sight in at 50 or 100 yards? anyone have a combo of powder / bullets that these CVA wolfs like?? any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I have a new wolf. Using 240 xtp and 100 grain pyrodex. Wet patch then dry patch after 4 or5 shots. Nice little rifles.

I think I may try the xtp's. I am guessing those are hornady's sabots that are a .44 cal bullet in a .50 cal sabot, correct?
After reading online seems like others seem to like that as well.

OK, just got back from wally world. I bought a bullet starter, a pack of 100 triple seven pellets, with a box of winchester 209 triple seven primers. Now I still gotta get bullets. They didnt have much to choose from besides some expensive powerbelts in a box of 12. They did have some cheap saboted TC bullets at 250 grains I thought about trying.
Now, I also bought a can a spray bore foam cleaner. Can I use rem oil for just rust prevent??

I can't find scope bases at all for this gun. Tried academy gander and Wally. Also can't find any xtp bullets.
