Best of the West Introduces Signature Series Long-Range Muzzleloader

posted on March 30, 2021
Best of the West (BOTW) has introduced a Signature Series Long Range Muzzleloader, available in both .45 and .50 caliber. These guns are tested and proven to shoot between .5 and 1 MOA at 550 yards, to ensure a long-range advantage at well beyond this distance.

The BOTW long-range muzzleloader features a side-discharge brake that directs the bulk of smoke away from line of sight, while reducing recoil. The dual side port brake and specifically designed crown, along with the included funnel, make pouring loose powder cleaner and more efficient. The muzzleloader also uses BOTW's Express Priming System, which is a patent-pending design that can store and feed three primed inserts from a magazine, much like a centerfire rifle. The non-saboted bullets have an advertised ballistic coefficient of .453 and maintain over 1,000 ft.-lbs. of energy at 800 yards. The result is better accuracy at longer distances over traditional muzzleloaders.

The muzzleloader can be outfitted with the purchaser’s choice of Huskemaw long-range optics. It comes with peep sights and a Huskemaw quick-detach system to allow hunters to remove the scope in states that do not allow them.
