I cant wait to shoot my Triumph! Im a little confused with this statement. FG suggests lapping the bore to polish out any areas in-order to ease up the loading pressure required. What does this mean? Thanks again guys.

The idea is a product like JB Bore paste or similar products will polish out any rough machining areas, burs, sharp edges ect that make loading hard. The polishing just smoothes things out. That's the claim.

Makes those hard loading tc's bearable for the first time. This is very common practice. I do all of my bores, even centerfires with it. It will not an abrasive compound.

Last sentence is goofy.

What FG really wanted to say was CVA, TC, Lyman, Traditions, ect might benefit from an internal polishing. He didn't mean to imply that only TC could benefit. You don't want to polish the CVA's too much do to the extreme overbores and thus having the bullet/sabot fall right out of the barrel if you happen to tip it downwards.

Funny HM. One of the reasons I sold the Omega was most all the bullets I tried in it were too loose. Even the .503 FPB.

muley, omegas have a wide variety of bore sizes.

The triumps on the other hand are well known for tight bores. Everyone on huntingnet that owns a trump, 99% of the time has to use JB Bore paste in it. Not making this stuff up guys. This isnt unheard of if you've been on some up to date forums.

All of my barrels get it, You can shoot a barrel smooth but IMO any nicks or burrs in the bore are just filling up with lead/copper rather than being smoothed out properly.

Its awesome to use on triggers as well but you do have to mix a bit more oil in with the paste or else it gets a very tight gummy feeling.

Muley, my old omega had a .502" bore as well. tc maxiballs you could practically blow it down the barrel and it would seat lol

I was still surprised that it was so loose. When I talked to TC they told me the Omega and Triumph have basically the same barrel except for length. I was expecting a tight barrel. Even Powerbelts and sabots were too loose.

Along with the trigger. I wasn't impressed with their quality control.

I've never heard of a CVA that the .500 Thor didn't fit perfect. I didn't even bother with the Thor sample kit. I just ordered the .500.

I like the TC sidelocks. Not so much for the inlines.

If I had to rank them out I'd have TC, Traditions, then CVA a distant third. That's just how I see it. Most of all the people I know and hunt with are TC fans, there's a solid historical quality reason for it! To all those in the market for a new/used muzzleloader, you don't have to look no farther than TC line of products. Every TC rifle I have ever owned was a great shooting, accurate, and quality made product, what else needs to be said? Someday CVA will be able to say that, too! Heading to work!
