im looking around for a third muzzle loader.  my question is I have a cva mr.  is the plains rifle any better than the mr  the only difference I see if the barrel length  28  does that 3 inches make a lot.   and the weight its 7.3   my max distance is 200 yards.
thanks

Only thing that seperates them is the barrel length. Plains rifle 28in barrel i give you roughy maybe 60-70 fps faster velocity.  Not really a big enough difference to matter. I like both the cva mr and the plains rifle. Freind of mine has the plains rifle i have ahot it a good bit. I do like the shorter MR myself easier handling.

I would recommend the MR also. There isn't any "real" advantage with the longer barrels on muzzleloaders.  It's just personal choice, what's comfortable for you.
