I have a CVA Optima that I plan on buying a shotgun barrel for. A buddy of mine got a chance to get at tag in Iowa this Spring if he could find a muzzleloading shotgun. I noticed that they had shotgun barrels now for my Optima for $129. He told me he would buy the barrel, but I told him if he split it with me I would let him use it. The problem is that I don't have any accessories I need for shotgun muzzleloading. What do I need? I have some experience with shotgun muzzleloading but it was several years ago. I used to have a Beretta over and under that I used a couple of times to hunt quail with in the late 80's so I have shot a muzzleloading shotgun, but I ended up selling it because I didn't use it at all the last 15 years. I never really used any scientific loads when quail hunting and usually just loaded the same powder charge of 90 grains, put a wad over that, then poured a shot load (usually too much), put a wad over that, and then commenced to killing quail and pheasant in KS. I had a lot of people laugh at me when I used it, but I shot a lot of limits of quail and pheasant with it and it was fun. Sometimes I had to ask if I had killed anything because the wind was blowing in our face. I need to know what you guys use to measure your shot load, what you use for quick loads, should I use wad or shot cup, what 777 charge and load to use, and any other tips or suggestions you folks might have.
