Horror Stories

First of Im new to the forum and still rather new to hunting. Mostly due to a lack of places to hunt. So this is my first real season of busy hunting and I have still yet to claim my first kill so any tip/trick will be greatly appreciated.

With that being said heres my question. I bought a New Frontier Cascade Magnum muzzleloader from Cabelas a season or two ago. Its a rather cheap low end gun but a good gun for someone new to muzzleloaders (so I was told). but lately I have been reading reports about guns similar to this one exploading even when used as directed. any comments? More than one story has envolved the shooter losing a hand, I would be rather upset if this was the event with my first deer in my sights.

thanks all

i would get in touch with the manufactuer and cabelas and ask about the ML and see if there are any recalls.I also would compleatly disassemble and inspect the gun for cracks and wear.If you dont know how to do this bring it to someone who does.no deer is worth dying or being maimed for.Oh yeah welcome to the club

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

I have been doing research about this gun and am unable to find anything about it. I can't even find anything on Cabelas where I bought it! Its a BPI-New Frontier Cascade Magnum .50 so if anyone has any info on this id love to have it. I cant find a company website or any info about someone buying that company. I havent shot the gun sence shortly after I bought it because I lost my shooting place, therefor I cant remember what load to use. Anyone know where I can find this info or hapen to have owned this gun?
