PostSubject: CVA accurate v2 long range   December 27th 2015, 5:16 pm

I'm really torn between the 30 inch barrel and the 27 inch barrel. I want to set up a long range gun for shots to 300 yards. Will a 30 inch barrel really give me a big advantage for shots to 300 yards or can I make shots to 300 yards with the 27 inch barrel. My load I wanna first try is 110 grains of black horn and CCI primers and a parker 275 grain ballistic extreme covered with a black crushed rib sabot.thanks guys

you'll see very little difference and to be quite honest, 300 yards is a very very long stretch with a muzzle loader. 300 yards with 10MPH wind drift is just going to really be some massive wind drifts to do the math on in the field.

Me personally, that 3" extra of barrel just really feels odd on a muzzle loader and its going to make it barrel heavy.

I hunt with a 32" .58cal Hawken, but its balanced out pretty nicely with some new steel trim, including a heavy buttplate which puts the gun at 9lbs.

Welcome to the forum! Hopefully someone with some long range experience can chime in and help you out a bit more.

By the way, I tested a Traditions with a 30" barrel and compared to the 27" barrel, it only picked up on average 45 to 70 FPS.

Thanks man Carlos told me the 27 inch barrel accura v2 will shoot just as far as the 30 inch barreled one. If 45-70 fps is all I would gain it wouldn't even be worth the extra cost and the 27 inch barrel is probably plenty to burn even a magnum charge

I picked up a CVA accura v2 long range at cabelas and it was very well balanced and not to heavy it was a very nice gun

I did a couple of test with a CVA MR out to 365 and 400 yards, with a 250 gr Barnes 250 TEZ. First time I shot that far but was happy with it, have taken Coyotes out to 300 yards with an Accura V2. All was done with 110 gr of BH 209. If you go to the range and do your part with the 27 in barrel you wont have a problem at 300 yards.

With me, I would not spend the money for it, I would use the extra money to buy a better scope, that is the one thing that will help you the most as far as my 2 cents goes.
If it fells and shoulders better than the 27 in, go with what feels better, For me the MR felt better and I had 2 of them.

Very good scope, I had it on 4 of my other M/L, now it is on my 45 cal Kodiak, and I have a new one on my Optima. Waiting to see some pic and range reports.

I guess my question is, How far do you want to shoot, and at what? Animals or targets. 
And how much time are you going to put into it, The conditions change every minute just when you are target shooting. Then you are going to have your great day's and your not so great day's shooting.

I'm perplexed as you put this in Northwest section, with hunts for big game limited to bore size lead projectile and iron sights.  And, you say you want to shoot at 300 yds?

In the US Army I qualified as Expert with the M-14, .762X51, ball (.308 win) with the rifle's peep type iron sights.  It required I hit anywhere on 300 meter, man sized torso target, from unsupported prone position..I was 25 years old too.   Even with the peep sights I've put on my Optima v2 and Knight Bighorn rifles, using 777 and the best BC, (.253),  .444 gr. all lead Powerbelt,  I don't believe I would try any shot at an Elk's kill zone at anything over 150 yds....With a well supported position.


So I assume you want this rifle for something else?



50 yds. Optima V2 peep sights,  .444 PB  90 grs 777, sand bag bench:


From PB chart, drop at 250 yds. is 42" for copper clad .444 no specs for plain lead or past 250 yds:
