What is a good cheap muzzle loader to buy?
How is the CVA Wolf for $179.00?

Any other suggestions?

Bird Hunt Dog

cayugad found this one...

Have any of you seen this rifle advertised in Sportman's Guide Magazine. I was just sent the catalog. I can not decide if this is a Remington Genesis or something else. It looks "interesting" but not for me. The actiion swings to the side, that's why the Genesis came to mind. For the price $149.00 it might make a good starter rifle for someone that is not concerned about the quality of the barrel they shoot. AND I DO NOT MEAN THAT LAST STATEMENT TO START A DISCUSSION. I am just saying, Traditions have the Spanish barrels. Some find that unacceptable is all.

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=298018 This is where I first came across the Tradition's Yukon. I know nothing about the rifle, but it appears to be on the line of the Remington Genesis from the pictures, for a lot less money.

I have a CVA wolf magnum, bought it at wallmart last year for $130.
I am very happy with it so far.
Happy shopping, we all need more guns, right.

Can't speak to the Wolf, haven't shot it. I've owned two CVA: Staghorn and Buckhorn. Both are good, the newer one is excellent. It is accurate, with a very good trigger. I've killed three deer with it this year. Got it for about $75 post-season sale last year; you can get them for $99 at Walmart, I think, now.

Load it up with 90gr powder and 240gr XTP, and go kill deer.

As I've already stated, I think the Traditions Yukon is the Remington Genesis with a different name and some cheaper stuff. The Genesis is made for Remington by Traditions. I recommend the NEF Sidekick over any of those though. That's my opinion. It's a much better gun for the money.

Im for the H& R Sidekick (NEF) I own one, the price isfair and the gun is amazing for the price...AMERICAN MADE too.
No offense to anyone who owns a CVA but the Sidekick kicks their ass.
I shoot 100g. of Triple 7 pellet formand 250 gr. Shockwaves bonded.

I clean every other shot and have no problems grouping shots consistantly.
Im using mine throughout rifle season and muzzleloader season here in Missouri starting next Saturday.

Interesting to hear. Is this personal experience? What CVA did you own, and what does the NEF Sidekick do better?
