What can I do to this gun to make it stretch out ?
Without getting too deep in the wallet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I have a CVA optima elite 50cal. It's inline, 209 primer, break action, and capable of magnum charges (CVA says 150 grains of pellets) in a 26" factory barrel. The twist is 1 in 28". It is stainless, of course, and has a thumbhole stock. Nothing is custom, this thing is as factory as it gets.
I want to get as much lethal range as possible with this gun on Midwestern deer.
I've been using 295gr Powerbelt bullets and 150gr Triple 7 pellets.
What can I do to this gun to make it stretch out without getting too deep in the wallet? And when complete, what will the lethal range be?
