I know some shooters have issues with their first shot being off a bit or maybe even up to 2-4 inches. I took the CVA Optima out the NRA Whittington Center today just for a little fun since it was nice and warm. Loaded up 100gr blackhorn209, cci 209m primer and a .500" 250gr Thor conical and took my first shot. Right on the money! Took shot #2 and opened the hole, Pulled slightly on #3 but overall, I was extremely pleased with the 100 yard group. I re-sighted with the 300gr powerbelt Aerolite with 100gr BH209 since I have more of those than I do Thors. Just time to wait for cooler weather to settle in before shooting any more. Saved the primers to show how clean they were. I sent another 15 round downs range at the silhouettes and the Thor I shot made that pig Silho ring like a church bell!
