    I recently bought a CVA Kodiak Pro 209 magnum in .45 cal. I am still trying to figure the right powder bullet (preferably powerbelt) combo. Input is greatly appreciated.

    The best bullet I know and if you like to shoot a lot like me is the Hornady .429 diameter 265 grain soft point. You will need .429 magnum sabots and you will find the bullets in the reloading section.

        Thanks but prefer to stay with powerbelts. The y shoot cleaner and seem to be fairly accurate with the right powder.

          I use the Powerbelts with the yellow base and yellow conical tips. I have forgotten how many grains they were.

          I also use the "Hodgdon triple se7en, pellets,45/50."
          If I use 2(two)pellets, my accuracy is dead on at 100 yards.

          Having the Kodiak Pro Magnum too, I wanted accuracy at 200 yards, but it was somewhat off and inconsistent, using three pellets at 150 grain, for which the muzzle loader was intended for.

          The reason I purchased this gun, is because a sales rep was at Bass Pro in Cincinnati, Ohio, asked if I ever hunted with a 30:30 or a .270. The answer was yes for both, as he went on to expain that the .45 caliber would be best suited for me,plus the price was a beter fit for me at the time.

          What kind of powder are you using, and how many grains? Is your accuracy where it should be,at 100 yards, 200 yards?

            2 poppa, i also use 195 grain hollow point bullets. I use Hogden triple 7 45/50 powder. It is zeroed in at 150 yards, my average shot. I can shoot out to 200 and only raise the cross hairs a bit.

              One more question KMB, is your trigger pull hard? What I mean is, does the trigger require you to squeeze harder than you think you should?

              Mine does and it cost me a monster ... let me know how hard it is to pull.

                2poppa, my trigger seems to be just fine. I am not experienced but i like the amount of pull on my trigger.

                      I understand the reason someone would pick the heavier bullets. However, heavier bullets cause greater recoil and will affect recovery time and may result...

                      I wouldn’t spend that much on a 10/22 but I might on a bolt gun. For that kind of money I expect some style to go with it, of the Cooper or Annie level....

                      I like the Remington Golden Saber Black Belt 147gr 9mm (not +P) and the 180gr in .40. Check out the statistics. Some LEO friends always suggest the heavy...
