CVA has announced the arrival of its Paramount muzzleloader, the newest addition to the company’s line of muzzleloading rifles. Designed for shots at 300 yards and beyond, the new .45-caliber bolt-action muzzleloader fires a 280-grain PowerBelt ELR bullet at 2200 fps.
The Paramount’s 26-inch free-floating, Nitride-treated stainless steel Bergara barrel paired with PowerBelt’s new ELR (Extreme Long Range) bullets—which were specially designed for the new muzzleloader—can produce astonishingly tight groups at ranges previously thought unreachable for a muzzleloader. Also standard with the new Paramount is CVA’s VariFlame Breech Plug, which uses the hotter, more consistent Large Rifle Primer rather than 209 Shot Shell Primer.
The synthetic Paramount stock offers full adjustability of length of pull and comb height, and supports the barrel upon an internal aluminum chassis. A self-deploying compact ramrod and belt case is included for quick reloading, along with a one-piece range and cleaning rod.
