Re: CVA optima 209
bought the (blued) optima 209 mag last year.shot 300 round's out of it.very pleased with this inline.very accurate!AVG. 2.25 at 150 yard's.10! 3 shot group's after neroed in. with hornady 240gr.xtp mag. sabot's with 90-95 gran's.FFG. t-7 powder sub.. 2.5-7.0 pineridge scope mounted.
have a cva bobcat NO.11 cap's,(used)cva stag horn 209 mag.These two smoker's shoot out to 75 yard's at 2.00" group with 90gr.FFG. t-7 240gr.hdy.xtp's
I think the stag might have been over loaded from the prevous owner.L.S.S.
checked it out for me to make sure it would be safe to shoot.got the green light!,but he told me the barrel was a littel pitted at thebreach plug.
took it out,and that's as good as it get's.Any farther then that it's all over the paper. no matter what sabot,conical,powerbelt or powder I used.
well anyway the optima is the was to go.got to love the brake open's!
easyer to clean too.going to try some power belt's next.
