October Gear: Stuff You Want

Some muzzleloading enthusiasts emulate Jeremiah Johnson, while others hit the woods looking more like George Jetson. Regardless, here are a few items that'll make a buck resemble Steak Diane.

CVA’s In-Line Muzzleloading Outfit contains everything you need except powder to load your muzzleloader in a hurry, shoot it accurately then put it away until next season.  Includes PowerBelt bullets. ($64)

Because the above kit includes everything you could possibly need, all you need now is a place to keep it all. Cabela’s Full-Grain Leather Possibles Bag is as perfect as a kangaroo’s pouch if you’re a joey—or a Jeremiah. ($49)

Your ML’s accuracy potential starts with consistent ignition from the primer. That’s why Thompson/Center Arms recommends Fusion 209 primers. Handy rubber holder is included. ($9)

You’d likely have to pry Jeremiah’s Hawken from his frozen hands, but bet your shorts he’d trade his old black powder for a substitute like Black MZ. Why? Because it’s more consistent and doesn’t foul bores like the old stuff, and for that ol’ JJ might swap you a swig off the jug. ($29 per 1-lb. bottle)

The Traditions Vortek Reaper .50 caliber pistol is shorter than its name by nearly a foot. This break-open, muzzleloading pistol features a CeraKote finish, an extending ramrod and an Accelerator breech plug for easy cleaning. Even with a full-power load, it exhibits no recoil on your shoulder. (No guarantees about your hand.) Available in camo/synthetic or traditional wood stock. ($459)

Leupold’s VX-3 2.5x-8x-36mm Handgun scope is one of the best available with its Xtended Twilight Lens system, Diamond Coat 2 lens coatings, precise click adjustments and extended eye relief so your fancy new muzzleloading pistol doesn’t hit you upside the head. ($499)
