PostSubject: CVA BUCKHORN ACCURACY   May 20th 2014, 5:51 pm

Hi All, Bill here. I was wondering what kind of accuracy I could get out of my cva buckhorn? I know there is a lot of variables. I will be using the best stuff I can get and I will be trying it all to find what work's best. Any ideas would be great. Thanks Bill

Hi Bill.....I can't speak for your specific rifle, but my CVA's all prefer Harvester EZ Load sabots & then just about any bullet that you want to put in them. XTP's, Speer, PT Gold, Barnes.....you name it. In any case, hang in there & someone with the proper knowledge will be here to help you soon

Thanks GregK, I will be using thor 250gr. and 777 powder. I will also try thor's and the #11 setup with swiss 1 1/2 to see how that goes. Out here in the Left Coast of California we can't use sabot's in hunting season.

The #11 T7 lose powder will work great for you & you will need a pretty good charge to push that THOR, but it is an excellent choice. You can use.500 cal bullets with a wad or a sub base, knurl them to fit your bore, & go sabotless, Lehigh makes a great bullet in the .500/350. Another good choice would be the Barnes XPB series. Just food for thought.

I forgot to mention that we also have to use all copper bullets since the first of the year a new law was passed that the hole state will be lead free for hunting ammo

be careful with the lehigh, it does contain a small % of lead which makes it illegal in california when the ban kicks in. The thor, i'd start with 90gr t7 and go up to 110gr. If you hit the sweet spot at 90-100gr, dont even bother with 110gr.

open sights and good eye sight, I'd hope for at least 2 to 3 inch 3 shot group with swabbing between shots.

Man. they are doing all they can to tie your hands aren't they?

As for a scope, when you find the right load you should be able to shoot 1" groups at 100, with a good rest & practice.

Helpful hint don't let your barrel touch your rest I did that yesterday and got flyers straight up from my main group make sure the stock is on your rest, once I did that my buckhorn gave me 2 3 shot groups 1.5 inches, with the 300 gr shockwaves in superglide sabots.
