American Rifleman had been happy to report CVA’s advancements over the years, but this latest offering for 2021 is destined to push the envelope in the world of commercially built blackpowder muzzleloaders. Where others have fallen short, CVA’s Paramount Pro Long Range in .40 cal., charges beyond the limited expectations hunters and shooters have when it comes to the primitive functionality of muzzleloading rifles.
At the heart of the the CVA Paramount Pro is a 26” premium .40-cal., Bergara barrel machined from 416 stainless steel. With a super-magnum charge behind PowerBelt’s new ELR bullets and stabilized by the fast-twist barrel, m.o.a. groups out to 300-yd., can be achieved. All that is not possible without enhanced ignition from VariFlame, among other features.
CVA supplies a handy muzzle brake that helps soften the blow from the high-velocity-producing muzzleloader. Opposite the muzzle is CVA’s receiver patterned after the venerable Remington 700, and a Grayboe Terrain fiberglass stock supplies the foundation for the barreled action. Remington 700 riflescope bases are a natural fit, too. Grayboe supplies its camouflage pattern for the exterior and sling attachment points front and back, flush cups and standard studs included. Hidden storage behind the hinged floorplate lets users store loads and accessories on board.
American Rifleman’s new-for-2021 Paramount Pro Long Range sample arrived with professionally installed bases, rings and Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44mm optic. Combining the well-magnified optic with the supplied TriggerTech trigger and magnum-charge capability of this latest addition to the Paramount Pro lineup, muzzleloading has never looked so good.
