I have a old cva muzzleloader that is about 10-12 years old that I really hate just does not shoot very accurate at all. I also failed to take good care of cleaning it years ago when I first got it. The old cva I have is like a bolt action style that you have to pull the bolt out and stick the bar thru to pull the breach. I seen all the newer style muzzleloaders look allot nicer know. I am looking at dicks sporting goods and bass pro which is beter and why of each please. I only use it to deer hunt with. I also like the package ones that come with scope but does not have to I can always buy another scope.
Thanks in advance.

If you're not going to clean it daily, you had better get one in stainless steel. It will still corrode but slower.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Optima but don't believe that it's a SS gun, just bright white.

I really like my T/C Triumph. Very accurate.

Why don't you take one for the team and buy a Redemption rifle. The company is a spin off from the Thompson Center co. and they created a rifle with ease of cleaning paramount in their minds

I am planning on taking care of it better know but I also may go hunting with it anf want to keep it loaded for three weeks just pulling primer is this perfectly okay. I also have read good things about the optima I will check out the triumph. The redemption look nice just not sure I want to fork out that much.

That's how you got in trouble the 1st time. Unless you use Blackhorn 209 powder, moisture will collect and start corroding your barrel. I believe that Pyrodex is one of the worst culprits that causes corrosion. You need to unload and clean daily with it. Alot depends on the humidity in your area.
