The CVA Wolf is short, light and a blast to shoot. Topped off with a Nikon Prostaff scope not only is it fun to shoot but also very accurate. My reason for the purchase of this CVA rifle was for the short whitetail muzzleloader season here in Tennessee. I will be trying it out this 2013 season. To date I have shot approximately 150 rounds through this rifle. The more I shoot the more I like.
The CVA Wolf is a dandy low end Muzzleloader. Low end does not always mean inferior product, just not all the bells and whistles. The Wolf is a prime example of this. Light weight and easy to carry the short barrel and stock feels tight and solid. The trigger is crisp and the pull is light, this was a pleasant surprise. Most Muzzleloaders have the aluminum ram rod and the Wolf is no exception care must be taken or bending is possible, a bullet starter is a good accessory to use. When time comes to dissemble this rifle for cleaning the design makes this process very easy. Breach plug removal is accomplished without any tools. One screw in the fore stock and it will drop away allowing the barrel to be disengaged.
My initial propellant was the Hodgdon Triple Seven pellets and I quickly change to a loose powder. Now my choice for this muzzleloader is the Blackhorn 209 with a CVA Blackhorn 209 breach plug. As for a powder charge I find that 80 grain per volume works best for my Wolf. The Blackhorn with a 50 caliber 240 grain Thompson Center mag express shoots 3” groups at 100 yards. This could possibly improve given the time an adjusting of charge and bullet weight. But for my application 3” is good enough. Good job CVA and thanks to Walmart for bringing this product to our local store.
