CVA Announces Paramount HTR Muzzleloader in .40 and .45 Calibers
The PARAMOUNT HTR is the new addition to the PARAMOUNT Series for 2021. The HTR is identical to the PARAMOUNT except for its stock, which is a more hunting-oriented function design than the stock used on the original PARAMOUNT, plus it is dipped in the new Realtree® Hillside camo pattern. While this stock is slightly lighter than that of the PARAMOUNT, it still has an adjustable comb for perfect eye-to-optic alignment, and the internal aluminum chassis that provides a rock-solid foundation for the barreled action. This muzzleloader has a free floating barrel and comes with a self- deploying compact ramrod. The PARAMOUNT HTR is available in both .40 and .45 calibers.
Dudley McGarity, CVA’s brand manager, said, “When we first conceptualized the PARAMOUNT, we felt pretty sure that .45 would substantially outperform a .50. And it certainly did, which is why the PARAMOUNT was first introduced only in .45 caliber. It was a natural progression to try a .40 caliber, but even we were surprised at the performance those first prototypes delivered. Needless to say, we knew we were onto something that would change the way people think about the capabilities of a muzzleloading rifle.”
The rifles of the PARAMOUNT Series are unlike any other muzzleloading rifles on the market. These guns were specifically developed and designed to handle “super-magnum” propellant charges up to 170 grains by volume (119 by weight) of Blackhorn® 209 and thus provide muzzle velocities comparable to centerfire rifles. In fact, our newest PARAMOUNT PRO and PARAMOUNT HTR .40 caliber offerings are capable of muzzle velocities as high as 2850 FPS, producing a 400-yard drop of only 23 inches! Combine speeds like this with the precision accuracy of the nitride-treated, stainless steel Bergara Barrels®, and you have the most long-range capable production muzzleloaders ever made.
