    New muzzleloader... Need help!!!

    Dude it kicks like a dang mule lmao! I can handle it and still shoot accurately but it’s definitely up there with a 300 win mag😂

    New muzzleloader... Need help!!!

    So I received my Remington 700 U.M.L. and I fed 200 grains of 777 with a 250gr accutip and out of the box I achieved a sub MOA 3 shot group at 100 yards. I also went 3 for 3 at the 330 yard gong. Long story short... stock Remington 700 U.M.L. although pricey is worth every penny in my opinion. An absolute tack driver!!!! Thanks for all the input guys. Maybe down the road I might convert to blackhorn 209 but if I’m achieving this accuracy there’s literally no reason to change as of right now.

    Hey metau, How Much blackhorn 209 powder can the stock RUML handle? Do I absolutely need an arrowhead breech plug to shoot BH209??

    New muzzleloader... Need help!!!

    rkv09 awesome thanks for your two cents!! I’m definitely gonna go with the U.M.L. almost everything I have heard from them is great. I want something I can reliably hit out to 300. I know the stock rifle didn’t workout with you but hopefully I won’t get a factory dud lol. I greatly appreciate the help man. Thank you.

    That’s awesome rkv09! I greatly appreciate the info. It sure looks like I will be going that route. So can you tell me more about your set up? So why did you have the arrowhead breech plug installed?? Is it because it wasn’t designed for BH209 powder?? I’d love to hear your feedback on the matter. Thanks for the help man.

    Yotebuster: I’ve heard the same thing but no definitive proof on the matter. I know of guys shooting 150 grains volume all day long but then I see posts saying never go passed 120 volume cuz you will gas cut your muzzleloader...?

    New muzzleloader... Need help!!!

    Hey thanks for the feedback guys! You’re all awesome. Keep it coming. So I had a question with the Remington 700 ultimate and blackhorn 209 powder. I hear there’s been a lot of problems with the breech plug getting gas spliced with that powder. So my question here is how much powder by “weight” and “volume” do you use? And have you ever had issues with the breech plug messing up from shooting Blackhorn 209.
  8. Hello my fellow hunters, I recently drew an awesome muzzleloader hunt and I want to pull the trigger on a nice modernized weapon system. I’m currently torn between Remington 700 ultimate muzzleloader or the new CVA Paramount. Have any of you had experience with these two rifles or would suggest another please feel free to give me some feedback. Thank you.

    Old Mature Tall Tined Muley Buck

    Thanks Guys! Yeah he was worth putting a tag on Love hunting those rutting bruisers!
  10. So I was out hunting on opening day with not much activity. Small bucks herding The does like usual. Following day spotted this nice buck bedded with 8 does, he had pushed all the small bucks off the mountain. I managed to stalk up too him and close the distance to 110 yards, he then stood up and I grunted at him. He then approached me with his ears back ready to scrap and I smoked him at 80 yards. Nice buck! Yet another record book deer👍🏻

    Another Mature Desert Muley

    So before opening day I backpacked my way into a remote part of the unit. In there I spotted a monster 4x4, definitely a 180+ buck. With him were 9 different bucks. All of which were good size! I set up camp within 3/4 mile of where these bucks were hanging out. Opening morning I set up and start spotting without seeing a deer in sight... That night happened to be super windy and the bucks moved to a totally different area to get away from the wind. So there I was playing the cat mouse game again, funny how these big bucks operate. Its never easy to pattern these guys! Just when you think you have hunch of what theyll do, they end up doing the opposite. Love chasing these buggers. So I crept my way into where they were the day before. I then tracked which area the bucks had gone. Turned out they went into the deepest nastiest canyons in the area. I was tracking them when I noticed the wind changed going strait towards the tracks.... Not Good....Being bad wind I changed my game plan and decided to hike to the peek across where there tracks went into. Once up there not more than 30 mins later I found 8 bucks bedded down. But NOT the monster 4x4 I was after. Bummer! So what do I do, I have a monster 3x3 almost 30 wide in perfect shooting position. Do I pass him or kill the big 3... I literally sat there puzzled for like 20 mins trying to decide. Ive been hunting long enough to never pass up a shooter on the first day. So I decided to go after the big 3! I stalk up and close the distance taking full advantage of the heavy wind. Closed the distance to 200 yards and let Bertha aka My 7mm rem mag take care of the rest. Nailed him first shot, dropped immediately! Thank the Lord for another awesome year of hunting!
  12. Geez, that is a beast of buck! What did it score?

    Kifaru vs Stone Glacier packs... Which One??

    Wow, bvanetten! That looks like a bullet proof yet light weight set up to do anything. Awesome idea, I just may end up doing that. The only down side is where would you fit a bipod and spotting scope n such?
