I am looking to purchase a muzzleloader, the Electra, by CVA and need to find out a couple things about it first. Now using my sidelock, when I am done hunting for the day, I can discharge the gun by using a CO2 cartridge to push out the powder and bullet, I need to know if I can do the same or something like it with the Electra, or does it need to be actually fired ? The gun store where I went the people there had no clue. I can call the company, however I felt that asking here first may bring me the answers I need. Also, if anyone has one, anything good or bad about this gun would be helpfull.
Can I also use pure lead bullets that I make in this gun and have it be accurate, (or even any other new in-line) or do I need to buy sabots? Any help would be appreciated.
