Title: Woodman Arms Muzzleloader
Post by: aquaassassin on Jul 08, 2020, 07:48:03 PM
Finally pulled the trigger on a .45 cal Patriot, hoping to mount the Leupold on it this weekend and get her dialed in!

Looks sweet!

For someone who knows next to nothing about them, whatís the big attraction?

That's an awesome purchase Frank! I love the hammerless technology.
As a lifetime CVA shooter since I was 17, I've never had the chance to handle one of Woodman's guns, nor do I know anyone that actually has one. But I did look at the Patriot when considering my last ML purchase. I went with the CVA Accura MR and it's the best I've ever owned.
But......this Patriot looks and sounds like it'll shoot awesome! Good luck with it Frank. Let us know how she shoots.
The seasons drawing closer ;D
Can't wait to get rid of this heat and get back in the stand!

Itís only 5.5 pounds and will cloverleaf at 200 and make 300 yard shots if you want. Also if using Blackhorn no need to clean gun or anything

Iím going to sell my LHR Redemption, ( what TC calls the strike now after they bought them out) though I think those might go to the wayside soon too. I wanted one of these before he gets bought out too. no need for it now. These Patriots will put anything to shame by a long shot. I held one and it was game over lolll

No it actually is the mechanism for cocking along with breaking the action

I was thinking that it might be for breaking when I noticed the gap in it, but it cocks it, too; interesting design.

Same here, I also hated the fact I was going to be paying more for a middleman in the Sales picture the last couple years and a logo on a gun I didnít want. I believe BWB is out of the picture now as far as selling and distributing so now I pulled the trigger. Nothing against BWB but I represent myself.

I will let you know how she goes, wishing these temps would drop but I guess I can still rip a few down the hole this weekend

Title: Re: Woodman Arms Muzzleloader
Post by: aquaassassin on Jul 15, 2020, 12:38:07 PM
Yes I got direct itís no longer through big woods bucks like it was the last year and a half

Nice looking ML Frank, cant wait to see the buck it drops (i know how you are)..
Title: Re: Woodman Arms Muzzleloader
Post by: aquaassassin on Jul 21, 2020, 04:29:41 PM
Thatís the plan! Still havenít found time to shoot it or get 100% on stand prep. Iím usually done by now.

Iíll tell ya this Covid BS has done nothing but triple my work, what Iíd give for just 1 quarantine day

She shoots like a dream! It shot a inch high on first initial shot like the said it would then dialed in once seasoned. Never touched the scope nothing just shot the 3 shots and it was already good to go! Just sat and leaned on that fallen tree in pic. What a amazing muzzleloader and no cleaning between shots love it!

Nice! Bet your pumped to use her this season.
I can agree on not having to clean between shots is soooo nice!
My Accura MR with the Nitride bergara barrel, I can shoot 10- 15 shots(maybe more?) and it only takes one swab to clean it out. It's absolutely amazing, compared to the maintenance these things use to take.  Man, muzzleloaders have come such a long way.
Title: Re: Woodman Arms Muzzleloader
Post by: aquaassassin on Jul 25, 2020, 06:48:48 PM
No doubt! The owner has one that they are on shot 400 with right now no swabbing

I pulled the breech cleaned that and left the barrel as they said too
Title: Re: Woodman Arms Muzzleloader
Post by: CAPTJJ on Jul 25, 2020, 07:30:43 PM
That's a shooter for sure.

Thanks for the evaluation Frank looks like i'm back on the woodman wagon. As far as cleanliness goes ever since i switched to black horn no fouling and easy loading on both my t/c's best switch i ever made.

Agree, this Blackhorn cannot be beat in any category besides maybe ease of reload as far as itís much easier to dump a speed loader with a few pellets and bullet in it then pour the powder to these then grab sabot etc.

But this Blackhorn is cleaner, higher velocities than my white hots pellets and quicker ignition with proper primers. Far more accurate with a repetitive burn rate etc. cleans well, reloads like a dream.
