    That sounds like it could be a rust issue inside or something with the sear. I'd email CVA for info on how to send the gun in for inspection/repair/replacement.

    TMZ, .451 Boat Tail. As a matter of fact I do have a little first hand experience. Over a decade worth. One thing I won't respond to is someone calling me out over a response to a question. We all have different experiences and likes. I don't have to justify what and why I like what I like to you. :-)

    Welcome to the forum... I might be wrong but I don't think he was trying to "call you out". I think he was actually interested to hear your specific experiences.

    After re-reading the question I agree, CoHiCntry. Please accept my apology, Drhorsepower and forum members, for being rude and blunt. I am sorry.

    I like this bullet because of the ballistic coefficient, terminal performance and the retained bullet weight. Especially on larger big game animals. I believe there's always more than one good bullet to choose from. Another one I have had success with is the Dead Center 300 grain bullet. It too has the attributes as mentioned above.

    Both of these bullets are excellent performers. I use Triple 7, FF and FFF for these bullets as well as Blackhorn 209. My rifle is a T/C Omega .50 cal with a Leupold Vari-x II.

    No smokepole, I'm sorry, I can see my previous post taken out of context.

    What state do you live in?
    I have been playing with the tmz, and the expander mz in my knight. Heading to the shooting range today with my old man, hope to report back better results than before. I'm using 777ffg and trying some mmp sabots.

    Smokepole.....I don't think DRH was "calling you out"! He's a good guy, a friend, and has been a contributor on this forum for years.

    DRH originally started this thread because he is new to muzzleloading this year and he is wanting to sort out which bullet to use for elk hunting. We later asked that people share from there own experience. There are a lot of bullets that shoot accurately from a muzzleloader, but are specifically looking for first hand performance on elk. I'm very much interested in this subject too, with 21 points in Colorado that will most likely be used on a muzzleloader elk hunt in the next year or two.

    I don't believe his clarifying questions is "calling you out". When he asked "what barnes bullet" there are several varieties of Barnes bullets. By asking "do you have first hand experience" he's only asking if you have taken elk with that bullet, and maybe you could share your experience.

    Little late with my last post. Takes a good man to apologize. Welcome Smokepole!
