This is a highly accurate (within 100 yards) blackpowder rifle. It’s extremely light which is great when it comes to the bush, but fair warning it does pack quite the kick on a full load lol
I admit being a first timer I was a little apprehensive about my first shot. I was worried about everything from a huge kick (eventhough I shoot a 338). One shot from the hip, one shot not aiming from the shoulder, then two shots at 25 yards 2" apart, moved the target out to 100 , hit two in a row, a couple inches apart right out of the box, using the car roof as a shooters bench. Its a great little gun, too bad I could only get within about 400 yards of the elk last year, but I will be back after them this December.I am not sure how far this thing will shoot with our NW rules, but I imagine 150 yards is about it.
I'm new to muzzleloaders,so I didn't want lay down a wad of cash,only to be disappointed.I went to the gun range loaded 80 grains of Triple Seven ffg,370 grain TC maxi-ball and CCI multiple use musket cap.Ranged the target at 60 yards and fired.BULLSEYE! Second shot inch lower.Impressive.Fantastic rifle,great accuracy.Thanks to all the great advice from Muzzleloaders.com and Sportsman's Warehouse.Purchased my Wolf rifle from Muzzleloaders.com.THANK YOU
I purchased a wolf NW and took it to the range firing 100gr. of triple seven 3F and a 295gr. power belt solid lead hollow point. After adjusting the rear sight I was able fire shots touching each other at 25 yards and doing the same at 50yds. The trigger pull is very crisp at 3 pounds and I am very impressed with this fire arm after 55+ years of hunting.
I was well pleased with my order.
Such a great rifle. Accurate right out of the box! Rear sight came loose but all it took was a little tightening and is hasn't moved since. Great with 100gr 777 and a 295gr power belt copper hollow point.
I finally settled on the CVA Wolf muzzleloader ... did not want to shell out the money for a top-of-the-line muzzleloader, so I had to do my homework to get a balance of price and features. I read a lot of on-line reviews and research, and I think I made a good choice with the CVA Wolf. I went with the complete package with camo stock, scope, and starter kit included.
One disadvantage is that the comb of the Wolf stock was not designed for this higher scope mount. The comb rests a little low on the cheek when using this scope mount. For me, this was a minor inconvenience, and an acceptable trade-off to keep the ability to use the iron sites along with the scope.
Last night I took the time to clean the rifle from shots fired after sighting it in. The break action design makes cleaning relatively easy. I've heard stories about how difficult a muzzleloader is to clean. I did not have that experience. The black powder solution was able to easily clean the barrel after a few patches. The powder I used was advertised as "easy-clean", so perhaps that helped.
The Wolf has all the features of the most expensive muzzleloaders, but at a lower cost.
The hammer is accessible and easy to operate. Additionally, the gun produces good accuracy at 50 and 100 yards.
I hope this gun will provide many, many years of service.
