But muzzleloader powder is by volume, smokeless by weight.
Nope same.  Either can be dispensed by volume (typical for both) or weight.

I started off with a CVA Elkhorn about 6 years ago and promptly ate a cow tag because it didn't fire when I pulled the trigger. The following year I ate an any bull tag in Rimrock from the same issue. I couldn't say if it was 100% the CVA's fault or if I was partially to blame due to the learning curve of going from modern to muzzy.

Anyway, I upgraded to a Knight Ultra-lite and have killed bucks with it 3 years in a row. Never ever misfires. I started using 209s in it last year.

My son has a Knight Bighorn which is also an excellent choice. It is a bit heavy compared to the Ultra-lite but has never failed to shoot when you pull the trigger.

Can't go wrong with a Knight.

My cva optima has never failed, only a few slight hang fires after some very wet days. My brother has a night, I think itís a bighorn. He has had 2 misfires on different bulls. His only chances in 5 years. Iíve killed 3 bulls in 5 years and missed (cause Iím an idiot) a bull my first year hunting the muzzy season. I also shoot it quite a bit in the off season.
