I use an EABCO rear aperture on my CVA Accura V2. I really like it. I also had to install a Williams fire sight front sight as it is quite a bit lower than the CVA factory sight. I killed my Co. cow at 142 yards with my home cast and powder coated Lee REAL 320 gr. bullets. They shoot awesome out of my rifle when combined with Blackhorn 209 powder.

I had 2 tags and was able to take her calf at 184 yards.

My good buddy was also able to hang his tag on a real nice 6 point. He shoots an Accura with a SeeAll open sight and 300 gr. Thor's.

It was a very Hot, dry, dusty and tough hunt but we were able to fill out. Public land DYI hunt. 2 of the tags came off the leftover list.

Happy Hunting to you all,

Todd

Lots of good eating there! What's the purpose of the powder coating? Haven't seen that before... Are you pouring pure lead?

The powder coat acts as a lube and a jacket. It also adds a few thousandths to the bullet diameter, which my particular rifle needed. The groups went from 6” groups to the small 10 shot cluster above. I’ve tried it in several muzzleloaders with different powders. In my experience, it only works with BH209. I am pouring pure lead.

Thank you all for the words!

I hate when the law enforcement officers don’t know the law.

“k. Only open or iron sights allowed in muzzleloading seasons. Fiber optics
and fluorescent paint incorporated into or on open or iron sights are legal. Scopes or any sighting device using artificial light, batteries and electronic gear are prohibited during muzzleloading seasons.”

I brought it up in a hunter safety class I sat through with my daughter and 2 Game Wardens here told me they were fine. They meet all the criteria above.

Good luck and thanks again.

Justa,

Terrific hunt and some good looking victuals there as well. I always enjoy your stories and the fact that you take the young’uns with you- good for you.

The picture of the big dead bull at the bottom of a steep, narrow gulley brings back some memories I’d rather not have.....(shudder!)
