Traditions Vortek Ultra-Light is the 2010 Best of the Best Winner

If anyone is looking for a New Muzzleloader be sure to look into the
Traditions line especially the new Vortek UltraLights that are achieving Sub 1" MOA accuracy.

Good Luck and Happy Safe Hunting Always

pretty pricey IMO. I can buy another rifle for $170 that a trigger in the 3lb range and shoot that kind of group they are talking about. Heck i just finished that group about 10 minutes ago! LOL.

They are a nice rifle though, i like the picture/engraving on the side of the rifle.

Traditions certainly is producing a much better rifle now days than they did a couple years ago.

Pricey? what do you consider pricey and what should a buyer expect to pay for a Muzzleloader that can achieve Sub 1" Moa?

$440 for just a muzzle loader is expensive. But its new, give it a year or 2 and it will be down 100-$150

CVA Apex which swabs barrels runs $530 and thats off of cabelas. The big retail stores always up the prices a good deal.

Cabelas has the Vortek Ultra Light for 399.99

Sportsmansguide has the Vortek Ultra Light for 399.97,,,, 359.97 If you're a club member

making the Traditions Vortek Ultra Light even more affordable than the CVA Apex which according to you runs 530.

I remember when the TC hawken rifles were $150.00 now I saw something like 700.00. I don't think $400.00 for what you're getting these days would be outrageous. When I built my 54 flint Hawken I had $800.00 in parts and a mostly shaped stock. I thought I was crazy at the time but it was worth doing the project. $100.00 muzzleloaders are usually just that. Most will shoot pretty well but not much to look at.

HM, have you noticed the TC's seem to be coming down in price a little. I think lowering prices is a great thing.
