    I've heard a lot of good words about the smokeless Savages.

    I own a couple CVA's and wouldn't recommend them. Here in Nevada we are limited to open sights only. They are good enough for as far as I can shoot with open sights but that's about it.

    The Savage would be my next ML.

    My first muzzleloader was a Savage (somehow I ended up with a low serial number from their first run) and I liked it so much that I have 3 of them now.

    You don't have to clean them every day, and you can shoot a whole range of bullet sizes and weights. You can load them down for small stature shooters, or load them up for bigger stuff. Feral hogs really don't like a .458" 350g Barnes "X' bullet @ 2300 fps!

    If smokeless is legal where you hunt, I wouldn't buy anything but a Savage ML.
    I have one and have developed a load w/300gr Barnes original bullets that will shoot MOA or less to 300 yards. They are great muzzleloaders.

    i realy like my Roling block winchester 54 (replica) and with the open sites on the bench pull 6'' groups at 300 yards now because im origonaly from Nevada i ordered the long range rear site like the Bodine site and hit a 55 gal drum at 500 yards most of the time. there are lots of muzzleloaders out there and you need to find one that fits you i have had a few and the rolling block is the best that I have had my plainsman was alright but for it to shoot the range that i wanted needed a different barrel find one for you.
