The rifle is a CVA .50 Hawken. It was a kit gun that I finished and assembled I guess about 25 years ago. At 100 yds I can put 4 rounds within 2" of each other, then it gets too dirty to load. It has definitely taken a lot of deer. My Dad and my son both have "modern" muzzle loaders, but if I'm not using it,they always ask to take it instead of theirs. Actually had to ask my Dad to bring it back last time, because he borrowed it for about 4 years. I think he was hoping I forget where it was.
