    CVA again? This one go far? Looks high shoulder so maybe not.

    Looks like the tower was a good investment for you guys.

      Congrats! Good meat for the freezer!

      Here's my December 26th doe - not as large as the one you got. Heart shot at 30 yards with the Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor with factory 143gr Eld-X

        Well done, dewman. Hoping it's a good spot for years to come.

          No. I'm long done with the CVA pistol. Someone offers me $200 and it's all theirs. Muzzleloader (CVA). Shot thru the liver

            Nice animal PH. Did you per chance have a suppressor on?

                Thanks, I needed the meat and it's the first one for me off that lease. Didn't use the suppressor, mainly because it adds 8 inches to the length and throws off the balance. I keep the suppressor on the 300 Blackout and it's a great choice there mainly because of the subsonic ammo.

                  What load are you running?

                  I didn’t mess with my new CVA Optima much, sighted in with 80gr by volume of Blackhorn 209 pushing a 240gr XTP. Couple shots went around 2” @ 100 yards but no opportunity to use it on a deer.

                  I’m sure it can do better and I also have some 240gr Hornady Copper monos I’d like to try out. I’m thinking about doing the conversions and using weighed charges as well.

                              That's my load too, except I use 100 grains of loose 777

                                I’m glad I saw Motley Crue 30+ years ago. This is both painful to watch and funny as he.. at the same time.
