Sounds like you got most of it figured out. If I were to do it over again, knowing what I know now, I would get a break open style in-line.
As far as the powder, I recommend Triple Seven 50 grain pellets for .50 cal.
2 pellets (100 grains) are a good charge, you don't need magnum charges unless you are a glutten for punishment.

I have owned 2 CVA's and are pleased with them. There are others that are better.
If you own a TC Contender, you can get a muzzle loader barrel for it. Some shotgun mfg's make muzzle loading barrels for their shotguns. Look on line at Basspro, Gander Mtn, or Cabela's for an assortment.
CVA is a good entry level gun.

I own a $90 dollar Bass Pro shop - .45 CVA - Magbolt that has killed 6+ deer. I also own a $500.00 Knight rolling block which just killed its first deer. most of my shots have been less than 100 yards. Both guns have performed well and knock on wood I have never lost a wounded deer with one.

If I were buying a new gun today I would definetly buy a .50 muzzle loader, that is a break action style. Load it with 100 grains of triple seven and use a 295 grain powerbelt.

Hope this helps.
