    I have a CVA optima pro magnum that I bought for less than $300. For the money, I believe it is one of the best muzzleloaders on the market. It has been field tested and kcraider approved, if ya know what I mean.

    I have seen the Optima starting at $239.00 at BPS and Cabela's. Lefty, what about the White? Do you shoot that?

  9. For $300 I think you can get the black/blue Thompson Center Omega.

    That would definitely be my pick of the litter.

    Don't count out the CVA Kodiaks though. VERY NICE!

    I have noticed that CVA has bumped their prices up a little from last year. I shot one last season and loved it (I had borrowed it). I THINK I'LL BUY ONE FOR NEXT SEASON!

    Well the deal on the Knight Underclocked had for sale is hard to beat. The Knight is Made in America and they use Green Mountain barrels made with American proofed steel. The CVA rifles have barrels Made in Spain.

    Well I'm at school right now and the link won't work for me, but I think the website for White is---or so google tells me: http://www.whiterifles.com

    Give them a look. I don't shoot one, or have a muzzleloader for that matter, but I've never heard a bad thing about them!
    There are a few members on here that shoot them, and I'm very suprised they haven't commented yet... I guess the White faithful on the board are a little slow so far...:pop:

    Just recently found out that Mossberg offers a .50 cal muzzleloader barrel for their model 500 12 gauge pump shotgun. It takes 209 primers and has rifle sights on it, that's about all I know about it. The price is about $120. If you happen to have a Mossberg 500 12 gauge already, that may be an inexpensive way to get into muzzleloading. If you don't have the Mossberg, you can buy a new 500 12 gauge for about $200 and have a nice turkey, clay pigeon, rabbit, and coyote shotgun and put the muzzleloader barrel on for deer season.
    Has anyone here heard anything good or bad about these Mossberg muzzleloader barrels? I'm thinking of buying one as a backup gun. I shoot a CVA Magnum 150 which seems just fine for under $300 with all accesories and loads to get started. :cheers:

    Nope ~ just don't want for folks to think we're beatin' 'em over the head with the White's...

    If you don't own one, it's hard to explain.

    If you do own one, no explanation necessary... :banana:
