Has anyone had an opportunity to shoot this muzzleloader? There are a few threads from earlier this year, but I didn't see any with actual hands on shooting experience. It's looks nice (except for the weight). Any thoughts?

The release might be in May.
The self head spacing bolt will likely leak as they have in all the videos.
When they are released, ASG or now AR is planning on creating fix for the breech plug and bolt.
It will be interesting if CVA sends a shooter/team to compete.
There will be a host of better bullets available.

I’m interested as well for real world reviews.

Forgive me but what / who is ASG / AR?

Thanks, I think I’ll have to stick with the inlines for now... I’m sure their nice though.
What was meant by AR, is that they will create a new breech plug for the Paramount, which will replace the OEM plug. It'll make the rifle twice as good.

Gotcha. I guess I just don’t want to fix something I just bought but then again I restring most factory bows... I think my mind can only handle being ocd with one thing at a time.

I agree with USMC. It seems silly to fix a brand new muzzleloader. And the thing is 10 pounds....😳

Just about every muzzleloader made today needs some type of modification. Shims, "O" rings, head space, specific primers to fit. The Paramount isn't and wasn't designed to be a light weight brush gun, or a rifle to be carried all day in the mountains. Its more of a stand hunting and long range rifle and not for everyone.

I gotcha ENCORE, do you expect the Paramount to be a true 300+ yard muzzleloader?

I have very high hopes for the Paramount. Now the bullet they promote I highly question, but with a top quality bullet, I have a feeling it'll be better than a 300yd rifle.
