Welcome to the old ML club
, like you I too have hunted a long time with black powder firearms. I tend to stay away from CVA, just me, and used mostly TC products with a couple of Knight, Traditions, and a random CVA even a home built 54 Hawken. Right now I prefer Barnes bullets but also use the TC shock waves. I have bought some Harvester bullets but haven't made it to the range yet to test them. Powder is Black Horn for the in-lines and 2f & 3f black powder for the flintlocks. I'm not a pellet user and prefer top speed with accuracy. One thing though is, use what works for you!!!
