I bought a CVA Wolf last year, I borrowed a friends knight to hunt with the past 2-3 years.

I started shootin' Powerbelt's, The green one's, Maybe 240 grain bullet's? With 2 50gr pellets. Had pretty tight group's.

Took a fat doe with it last muzzleloader season at 70 yard's.

This year I bought a pack of Thompson Center shockwave's, 200gr bullet's. Though they are harder to load than the powerbelt's, they give me a tighter group and fly straighter.

Glad to hear you found a load that works. The general consensus I'm hearing is that a loose powder charge in the 89-90 grain range with the lighter bullets works best from this little short gun. One problem is that if you have much more powder than that you are burning a lot of powder outside of the muzzle just making a lot of smoke and fire that you don't need to.

Great load data! Usually with the Wolf, you don't want to push the loads, so 100 or under is a good charge. The SST's and the PowerBelt AreoLites are probably the best two performing bullets overall this year, but another one that I would rank extremely well is the Barnes T-EZ's.
Happy Hunting & God Bless

Hey Muzzleloader....glad to see you spending some time here. In the few years I've been hanging around I don't recall anyone who seemed to be an expert on blackpowder.

I have a CVA Buckhorn that I picked up for really cheap. Right now I'm shooting 100 gr of pyrodex pellets and I think a 240 gr bullet I bought off the shelf at the local Big R.... Any knowledge of this rifle/suggestions for load?
