I finally got to work on my dad's first muzzleloader this month. for me its too light but for him not too much unless he puts a max charge of 150 grains in then he'll want mine. I replaced the barrel, the bolt body and mainspring along with the breech plug and nipple.

The Staghorn is a really decent gun.  Bought one in 2000 when I came back to muzzleloaders:  It's the old one, limited to 100 grains of powder.   i bedded the action and floated the barrel.  That gun has killed 15-20 deer and dozens of hogs.

This one had the eclipse barrel but I had to replace the barrel because of the breech plug wouldn't come out to let me work on it so it sat for almost a year and finally got it going he just needs the accoutrements for it incase we're not close enough to each other. But it has a 1:28 twist a bit slower than my Traditions with a 1:32 twist but still it will be a good rifle for him.

Both mentioned twists are almost identical. Just about any sabot/bullet wouldn't notice the difference.
The higher the number - the slower the twist.
Follow the CVA manual for maximum powder charges and maximum bullet grain-sizes.

This rifle is testing me now the breechplug I had to reorder is for a 209 and not at all what I had ordered. I really don't want to change from the #11 cap to the 209 I have no idea on how the 209 acts or even if its hotter than the 11 cap.

Once you try a 209 you probably will never wanna use anything else unless you have a sidelock or a cap n ball pistol.

I have another #11 inline which is mine, so I don't want to change my setup.

I have a White Inline that uses #11 Cap, basically the same set up as the Staghorn.

Both are Good.
