    cva wolf

    with a dremel tool i have removed a 1/4'' of the release lever for the barrel. took a little longer than i planned as it was steel but now it protrudes forward from the trigger guard maybe 3/16''. a little cold blue and it looks better than original. i plan to trim it more after hunting season...

    cva wolf

    i had my cva wolf out hunting a few days and wanted to make a few comments. the gun shoots very good. i sighted in for 125 yds. the hornady 300 gr with red sabot and 80 weighed gr of bh 209 grouped a moa at that range . that by itself makes the gun a keeper for me ..........but, i have seen [not...

    trajectory

    thanks guys for the info. found the hornady calculator website and the bh209 chart in all this. since my newly acquired 300gr hornady's grouped under 1/2'' at 50 yds. with 77gr weighed bh209 i'm gonna run with that. chronograph, 200 yd range, this is gonna work. bob noffs

    Blackhorn Density

    so maybe in post #39 i should have said consistancy, not accuracy. say your most accurate shooting load may be 100 gr by volume . and then the density of the powder changes and now 100 gr by volume is not your most accurate load. i think the weight of the original 100 gr by volume will always...

    Blackhorn Density

    i guess i have a hard time believing volume is more accurate. it's a chemical reaction and energy from a chemical reaction is calculated by the weight of the materials[which translates into number of molecules] in the reaction. if volume was consistant,like gasoline volume would be accurate but...

    cva wolf tight barrel

    hi all, posting this to report what i found and to hear others experience . got the sample packs of fury 50 cal. jacketed bullets for my new cva wolf. after fouling the barrel i started with the .501 diameter. i have no reason to ever try that again. it was so tight i was afraid i was going to...

    proven load

    after a lot of reading my first attempt will be with bh209 and fury 320gr [or 325] plain tipped bullets with a wad. maybe then the xtp in 300 gr. with the green sabot . bob noffs

    Fury .50 bullets

    thanks. sooooo i see reference to ''the star'', ''the tip'', ''the regular star tip'',and ''plain star tip''. i have looked at fury's web site and i am still asking what weight was used in this test? thanks, bob noffs

    Fury .50 bullets

    i have no experience with fury bullets or their development. i can't figure out the weight from this thread unless i missed the weight somewhere. bobnoffs
