I just bought a CVA ML last night. What kind of loads are you guys using in yours?


I bought my son one last year and he's shoot'n 100grs of pyrodex and 250WFN in a sabot - it shoots extremely well!

Sounds like most are shooting loose powder. Anyone try pellets?

Hope I'm not hi-jacking this thread...

I shot two 50 grain pellets of powderdex for two seasons and it worked well.

I tried two 50 grain 777 pellets with a 300 grain sabot XTP. OUCH! I had some RS (same as 2ff) that I tried next. Shot both 300 grain XTP's snd 250 grain SST's with 75 grains. Decent accuracy and much easier on my hands.

When I use it up I will look at getting some Blackhorn.

Very simple and fun to shoot.

I shoot the Encore 209x50 and use 70grns volume, 777 loose powder, 245grn Powerbelt with 777 primers.
It shoots 2" high at 50yd and on at 100yds. Never had any deer walk off from this load. Never shot one past 70 yards.

This season I switched to 85 grains of Blackhorn behind a 240 TC Cheap Shot all lead hollow point. It groups well. I took a seven point whitetail at 71 yards with it this year.

Match Grade Machine has recently come out with pistol length muzzle loading barrels for both the Contender and Encore. Just another option to consider.
