Hey all, I know there is a muzzleloader section but there are not many posts or views there so i do apologize for posting this here. I am in the market for my first muzzleloader. I just spent quite a few bills on a rifle, so there isnt much left for the muzzleloader. I would like to keep it under 300(without scope). I have found 2 within my budget that seem nice. The CVA optima V2 and the traditions ambush III. There isnt much info on the Ambush III, looks new and I only found it on Cabelas. The CVA seems nice but does seem to have some issues here and there in reviews, such as you may have to buy a blackhorn 209 breech plug...and you may have to buy shims to help with blowback and to prevent miss-fires, both of which are relatively cheap fixes. My only real needs are...will shoot to 100 yards reasonably accurate(1.5MOA groups) and take deer(strictly hunting muzzleloader) Second requirement is it seems most people like stainless...not sure if this is necessary but I know black powder is pretty corrosive so if this aids in protection then great. The CVA Optima V2, I have found in blackstock/stainless for 270$. The ambush III is similar in price on cabelas...maybe a touch more. Any advice or thoughts?
