Welcome to the forum. I don't own an Accura but I have an Optima. CVA makes a good shooting rifle. I am going to guess you will enjoy shooting your new rifle. If you have questions just ask away.

Welcome. Check your hunting areas to determine whether you are in a "Condor" area. That will require you stick with lead-free bullets. :yeah:

Non lead = 300 grain Thor or Barnes Tez 290. Both shoot well out of my Optima. :applause:

Thanks guys
I will be hunting Deer in Nevada this year but I did order the Barnes so I can use it here in California.

No.1 issue is always consistent accuracy. That being said the Barnes is a good place to start.
