CVA Optima

Postby buckhunter21 » Mon Sep 24, 2012 11:40 am

I finally pulled the trigger and bought a smoke-pole. CVA Optima 50 cal with thumbhole. Does anyone else have one....and what can I expect from it as far as range?

Thanks!

cva makes agreat product. I am shooting 295grain powerbelts with 150 grains of 777 pellets. with open sights it will hold a 2 inch pattern at a hundred yards. I'm sure it would be tighter with a scope but i use it for blackpowder season and thats not allowed in Minnesota. Powerbelts shoot cleaner then a standard sabot round also recommended by cva.

thanks for the tips sir. might tap on your shoulder going forward since i'm a newbie when it comes to this smoke-pole business. definitely putting a scope on her. just last year i believe wisconsin started allowing having powered scopes on the muzz's, so that'll be nice. just wondering how far i can poke with it, with a BDC redicle or something along those lines....
