    CVA wolf
    I have white hots and 777 pellets

    Just ordered 45 hornady 350gr fpb

    Looking for something that is accurate, and will still expand at the lower velocities at 300 yards

    Although a high BC, he's going to have a rough time getting that velocity from his Wolf.

    depending on weather, i want to hit the range this weekend... with the hornady 350gr fpb, i should still be at 1100 to 1300fps at 300y
    that should be plenty as long as they are accurate..

    got to the range today to sight in and group test at 100y and crono

    2 white hots and the 350 FPB was 1400fps in my CVA wolf, 1.2" @ 100y groups 7x scope from a bipod prone

    3 white hots was 1700fps, but not as accurate

    3 triple 7's was 1830fps but accuracy was ****... 6 or 7" @ 100y

    didnt test 2 t'7s

    also need to get some 300gr FPB's to test

    painted it...

    That makes sence as the rifling has to etch the bullet when starting. Did you have any trouble with the tips getting stuck in the rod?

    i will be cleaning tween shots to sight in the way it will be shot when hunting, clean cold bore.. i may end up trying a combo of the three bullets i have, one for cold clean bore, one for warm/cold dirty follow up.... just depends how im feelin...
