CVA Wolf

I just purchased a CVA Wolf and wondered how you determine if it's a magnum or are they all able to use 150 grains of powder?

Greetings pluckit, welcome to the DHC...
Did you buy it new? did it come with the Owners manual?
did you look on the CVA CVA website for the answer?

I'm pretty sure the wolf is a magnum but you should check with CVA no matter how many people tell you it's a magnum.

Good Luck

look on page 4 of your manual 2nd paragraph it says.

CVA WOLF MANUAL


"MINIMUM AND MAXUMUM LOADS
CVA recommends a minimum of 50 grains, by volume, of blackpowder or blackpowder
substitute in your .45 or .50 caliber muzzleloader. The maximum load in CVA breakaction
guns, and any other CVA in-line rifle designated as a “Magnum” is 150 grains
by volume.
This maximum load is generally known as the “magnum” load and is best
suited for pelletized powder due to the more efficient burning characteristics of the
powder pellets. Magnum loads of loose powder may be shot but are not recommended
because of their inefficient and incomplete burning of the powder. Some bullet
designs depend on the thrust of the powder charge to expand, or obdurate, the bullet
inside the bore for best accuracy. Loads under 50 grains cannot be depended on to
do this. In many cases lighter bullets are more sensitive to this than heavier bullets
and often require heavy powder charges to produce the best accuracy. For those
who wish to shoot moderate powder charges of 90 to 120 grains the heavier bullets
generally give better results."

a 150 grain load is a "magnum" load. you can't shoot any more than 150 grain as that is the MAXIMUM LOAD.

What is the video of? if it's a hunting related or shooting video sure you can post it.

CVA Wolf

I just got off the phone with CVA customer service and they said all CVA wolfs manufactured since 2004 I believe he said are magnum,150 grain,capable.The ones with the QRB (Quick Release Breech) plug were manufactured starting this year,2010.So yes,mine is a magnum.I really only intend to use 100 grains,that is all that should be neccessary.But it's nice to know it's a magnum.Not too bad for 167 dollars.It's my fourth black powder gun by the way.I have 3 others.
