Well its been a very long time. For years i had a real love for black powder but somewhere along the way it passed. However, ive always hung onto 1, this bargain level CVA Missouri rifle purchase at Fays in Watertown NY 1989 it was what i could afford maybe 100bucs ? It harvest several deer over the years, but ive not touched it in at least 15 years till yesterday. Id been speaking with an old friend who happened to be with me on the first time id killed a deer with a muzzleloader this muzzleloader. Sooo i broke it out yesterday and loaded up a .490 patched round ball, 80grns of powder walked out to the 100yd mark and let one fly the chik/kaboom smoke cloud was exhilarating again ☺, load again same shot. No clue were they are landing ?? Ahhh success did i center punch my blue dot nope but not bad for 15 yrs away and that badguy would not have been functional any longer, i will spend time monday getting this old girl dialed in proper again as itbshould be and I believe I will hunt with it this year. It has also reinforced my desire to add a modern muzzleloader to the armory. Ps. Black buckhorn sights black target evening light old worn out eye ugggh its getting harder.
