Top Muzzleloaders for 2016

Top Muzzleloaders for 2016

The muzzleloading industry has seen great innovations throughout the last decade. Today's inlines are improving each year, and the accuracy and long-range performance has grown to levels that were never thought possible. With all of the products coming out, we decided to build a list of the latest and greatest muzzleloaders that have been added for 2016!

While 2015 had some small changes, the only big news was the CVA Accura Long Range. This model took the industry by storm, producing excellent accuracy and velocity to take game at up to 300 yards. This year, there are not many new models however, there are some serious upgrades over previous models. Check out our list below!

Traditions™ Vortek StrikerFire LDR - Nitride

The Traditions Vortek StrikerFire Long Distance Rifle has been the flagship model for Traditions for several years. The Vortek StrikerFire has removed the external hammer and replaced it with an internal StrikerFire System. This StrikerFire System creates an extremely efficient muzzleloader by creating faster lock times, creating more options for scope mounting, shortening and quieting the de-cocking stage, and making cocking easy, especially for those wearing gloves! The Traditions Vortek LDR comes equipped with a near “corrosion-proof” Nitride-treated chromoly barrel, which can withstand thousands of shots, while maintaining accuracy and performance. The StrikerFire LDR features a creep-free, TAC2 two-stage trigger, a Stow-N-Go butt pad, that can be removed with the push of a button, and a premium Soft-Touch Realtree Xtra Camo stock. The Vortek StrikerFire LDR is outfitted with a Dual Safety System and a Speed Load System which promotes easy loading and more consistent groupings. The one-piece Accelerator Breech Plug allows both loose and pelletized powder to be fired without having to change the breech plug!

Thompson Center Strike


Introduced September 2015, the Thompson Center Strike continues to be an innovative and successful muzzleloader in 2016. While not an entirely new muzzleloader, the Strike is the successor to the LHR Redemption, but with the TC branding and a better price point. The Strike is loaded with great innovations such as the Adapt Breech System, which provides an efficient cleaning process and eliminates seized breech plugs by removing the threading on the inside. Optimizing ignition performance is easy by simply changing out the primer adapter to different configurations. The patented Stealth Striker cocking system is revolutionary, as it replaces the traditional hammer with an ultra-silent mechanism that doesn’t interfere with the scope. The precision 24” barrel optimizes performance with high-performance projectile and sabots with its 1:28” twist rate. Each barrel has an Armornite corrosion protectant metal finish, which protects the barrel on the outside and the INSIDE (where most corrosion and pitting occurs). This rugged Nitride coating increases accuracy, and combined with the match-grade trigger, the TC Strike will boost consistency and confidence for years to come!
