Question Muzzle loader starters

What is the minimum items I need, I watched the CVA videos. I plan to shoot belted bullets, using powder pellets with Winchester primers.

But they 'pimped' a lot of accessories, and I am not sure what is fluff, and what is vital.

Please give your great as usual advice.

Gun, Bullets and Primer is all you will need. Been hunting for years with a CVA and just that and works for me.

Nulle,

I mean what cleaning equipment is necessary, versus what is just good to have.

Is there a 'bargain' cleaning kit set or do I just buy it piece by piece?

I got some IMR White Hots (72 each @ 50 grains) Winchester 209 primers for muzzle loaders, and TC Shock Wave Sabots (300GR). And I purchased a T-Handle starter with 'universal tips' and a new CVA ramrod.

That came to $68.00 after tax (I purchased localy, trying NOT TO GO TO WALMART). And I am dreading the cost for cleaning supplies.

Thanks again for any info!
