which one

OK guys I moved are conversation about muzzle loader from the crossbow section. Sold my xbow so Im looking for a good starter muzzle loader. Here are a few Ive been looking at. What yall think is the best brand to start with. Traditions Pursuit LT accelerator, CVA Wolf 209 magnum, Thompson/ center Impact. All of these are break action and come with scope. Price wise there all in the same range.

Traditions markets quality, dependable, safe, accurate muzzleloaders I don't think owning a Traditions will let you down. I'm a huge Traditions fan so I'm always going to try to sway a buyer into their direction. TC was once a top seller but hasn't been too impressive since they were bought by Smith and Wesson and as far as CVA, I'm always concerned with their quality control since their past history was nothing to brag about.

Good Luck

I bought it. should be here in 3-5 days. Planning to use 250g power belts and triple 7 pellets using a 100g load and Winchester 209 primers. Anything else I will need?

looks like all you need now are some cleaning supplies and some time to practice shooting it.

cleaning patches

TC #13 bore cleaner or Traditions EZ Clean solvent work best

then you'll need some
TC Bore Butter or Traditions Wonder Lube for a final bore coating before storing I always use it,
it's a good habit to get into to help protect and season the barrel while it sits in the safe...

IMPORTANT TIPS
When loading to not to crush your pellets when seating the bullet seat bullet slowly then make sure to mark your RamRod
so you'll know it's seated properly each time you load.

Good Luck and Congratulations !!!
