I just kept mine simple. 50 cal CVA wolf with a Nikon inline XR scope. Shooting 245 grain powerbelts with 100g Hodgdon Triple 7 pellets and Triple 7 209 primers. Have to copper brush the barrel about every third shot otherwise you can't fully seat the bullet due to the crud ring. Pulled the 3rd shot but the other 3 seemed pretty good at 100yrds.

This is admittedly more expensive than I was expecting
I bought a cva kit for a black powder pistol 25 years ago for $59.00. Fitting, finishing and assembling was like being a kid playing with legos, only better. Took me a while to figure out how to shoot it accurately. Several trials and some embarrassment. My buddies 80 year old grandmother watched us trying and failing to hit a paper plate at 30 yards. She then proceeded to show us how it was done, hitting the plate 3 times in a row.

Got a potential on a used, anyone familiar with the T/C Bone Collector? Was told from someone at my range a friend of theirs is looking to sell theirs for $200, seldom used, but around 10yrs old, anything to worry about?
