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.
