Anyone have any experience with this muzzleloader? I'm looking into getting one soon and figured I'd ask. Thanks

I have about 200 shots thru a friends. At 100 yards with open sights it is accurate with most every load we put thru the thing, obviously more accurate with the "right" load but 2.5" was our biggest 3 shot group.....again with open sights. He has since put a scope on it, but I have not been able to shoot it since then. He is claiming (and I trust him) moa at 150 yards which is as far as he has shot it so far.

I plan on getting one when I find a deal as good as the one he got. All in all I think it is a quality muzzleloader.

That's very promising to hear. I just can't seem to get my knight to shoot worth a Crap.

I have a disc extreme. It seems like the bore is large, like .504, and nothing really fits tight in it. I have tried the thicker sabots from MMP and still really no luck. I think the best 3 shot group at 100 off a bench would be around 3.5 inches. This is scoped with a good scope too.

IAHNTR I have both the Knight Disc Extreme and the CVA Accura (but not the Accura 2). Both have great barrels and are very accurate. If I was in the market for a new muzzleloader, I would get an Accura 2 in a heart beat....great barrel (Bergara), an excellent trigger (love it!), and now the finger removable breech plug. A major advantage of the Accura is that a break action is FAR easier to clean than the bolt on the Knight and no adaptors are needed for the 209 primers. I have the Knight for an Oregon legal muzzleloader, and shoot it with musket caps.

Thanks Umpqua, that really helps in my decision to go with the CVA. What combos have you found to work well in your Accura? I have some Blackhorn 209, but don't really know if the aftermarket breech plug is a must for that, and some PT Gold 300 grainers that I'd like to try. I'm also debating on a 45 or 50 caliber. hmmmm....

I liked the 50 caliber, just cause there are so many good accessories out there for a 50, but I have heard good things about the 45.

I have made no modifications to the breech plug and have had totally reliable results with a Fiocchi primer. Just make sure, when cleaning your gun to fully clean the breech plug, including reaming out the fire channel by hand with a loose fitting drill and using a welding torch tip cleaner to clean the fine hole. The load I am shooting is:

110 grains of Blackhorn 209 (77 grains if weighed rather than volume measured, I weigh my loads)
Fiocchi 209 primer (#616)
250 grain Barnes T-EZ (I did not have nearly as good of results with the TMZ)

Here are a couple links on the Accura and that load:

What sabots were you using? How much blowback have you experienced and have you experienced any troubles with the ramrod holder inner thingy/guide. Also do you thing one could devised a way to attach a Harris bipod on it??

I was using the sabot that comes with the T-EZ bullet/sabot combo. The T-EZ is a looser fitting bullet/sabot combo than the TMZ bullet/sabot combo.

There is a blow back adjustment on the Accura. Surrounding the firing pin is a threaded adjustable face that you screw in or out to exert the proper pressure on the primer. Also, I think European 209 primers tend to be a tiny bit larger diameter. I have very little blowback.

I have had some problems with the ramrod sticking. I still need to chase that one down.

I have shot Harris bipods for 25 years on all my rifles, but I have not looked into mounting one on this rifle yet.
