CVA™ Paramount HTR Muzzleloader Rifle - .40 Caliber Nitride Threaded Barrel - 1:20 Twist - PR3504N
The CVA™ Paramount HTR is a feature-packed long-range performance muzzleloader. The Paramount HTR has an upgraded caliber, stock, and Nitride™ finish on the barrel.
The CVA™ Paramount HTR Muzzleloader is a lightweight version of the ultra-popular CVA Paramount. This HTR Muzzleloader carries over some of the most popular features of the Paramount, but with an upgraded stock design and a new caliber. The Paramount HTR in .40 caliber is the ultimate long-range muzzleloader. This gun is equally at home chasing whitetails in the Eastern US, as it is climbing the Western mountains for elk and mule deer.
The Paramount HTR features the CVA™ HTR stock, which has an adjustable comb to fit any shooter and optic choice. This comb adjustment is inset in the stock to allow for ambidextrous use, as there is no protruding knob to worry about. Adjustable stocks are gaining popularity in the shooting community due to the ability to give a shooter a proper cheek weld to the stock, whether they are using open sights or scopes with various ring heights. Additionally, the inset screw gives the Paramount HTR™ a streamlined and sleek look and feel. The CVA™ HTR stock features Realtree Hillside camo, with a Soft Touch finish for great grip in all conditions.
If it isn’t broken why fix it? Why move away from something that seems to work so well? This is the most common question we get about the introduction of the .40 caliber. After the introduction of the PowerBelt ELR bullet in 2019, muzzleloading rifles have been able to stretch their range while maintaining incredible accuracy and kinetic energy. With the addition of .40 caliber to the CVA Paramount HTR, this gun will be capable of incredibly high velocities and be able to reach out much further than its predecessor, while still maintaining high energy. With a BC on this .40 Caliber PowerBelt ELR of .360 and muzzle velocities over 2,800 feet per second, the CVA Paramount HTR in .40 cal will have the same bullet drop at 400 yards as a .300 Win Mag! This greatly extends the range of the Paramount muzzleloaders and increases terminal performance. Currently, the .40 caliber muzzleloaders are legal in most states for deer and elk, but here is a convenient map to consider the legalities in your state here.
The barrel and action on the CVA™ Paramount HTR will be the same Bergara barrel as the standard Paramount, which features a Nitride coating. The .40 caliber barrel on this muzzleloader is 26” long, with a threaded muzzle to accept the CVA Paramount Muzzle Brake, which is threaded ¾” x 20. To properly stabilize the high BC muzzleloading bullets used in this muzzleloader, the HTR features a 1:20” twist rate. The Bergara™ barrel on the Paramount HTR features interrupted fluting for lighter weight and greater heat dispersion. Just like the previous Paramount, the HTR features a free-floated barrel, which removes the under-barrel ramrod. The Paramount HTR will ship with a collapsible .40 caliber carbon-fiber ramrod.
The CVA™ Paramount HTR Muzzleloader features the patented VariFlame™ Ignition System for a faster, hotter and more consistent powder burn. While most muzzleloaders use 209 primers, the VariFlame™ System in the Paramount allows for the use of large rifle primers. With the VariFlame™ Ignition, the Paramount HTR is capable of burning 150 grains by volume (105 grains by weight) of Blackhorn 209 with the PowerBelt ELR 230 grain bullet leaving the muzzle at over 2,800 fps. Included with the Paramount HTR Rifle is a special tool that will allow you to remove spent primers from the VariFlame™ adapters so you can reuse the adapters multiple times. With the initial rifle purchase, each customer will receive a pack of VariFlame™ Adapters, as well as the VariFlame™ re-priming tool.
The CVA™ Paramount HTR muzzleloader is a high-performance muzzleloader is designed to deliver sub-MOA accuracy out past 300 yards.
