    BH 209 Weight vs Volume

    Makes sense. I filled one tune to 100 (eyeballed) and then measured the weight. I then filled all tubes with that weight. That will be more consistent than my bad eyes😁 thanks

    BH 209 Weight vs Volume

    So I was at the range the other day shooting my CVA at 100 gr BH209 Volume per the load data table. The way I read the table that would be the same as 70 gr by weight but when I started weighing my loads to try and ensure consistency I noticed the 70 gr by weight was only about 90gr by volume...

    Bullet starters

    This is probably A dumb question but I was at the range today and a friend of mine indicated that my bullet starter was for round balls. Are there different bullet starters for sabot bullets? I have used this one for a while and never gave it any thought. Thanks

    Recipe for deer

    Thanks for the recommendation. The only Barnes I find in 250 TEZ are the spitfire and come with the sabot. Am I just not seeing the plain bullets or are you pulling them out and putting the round in the Harvester Sabot? Thanks

    I should have mentioned that I have CCI primers already so I was going to try those to start with if it will fit a recipe.

    Nitride or SS

    Need opinions on which barrel is better/resist corrosion and is easier to clean. From what I understand a Nitride barrel is SS just that it has undergone the nitride process which discolors the SS. Opinions and thoughts appreciated.

    Looks like CVA has a trade in deal going and will give 35% off regular priced rifles if you have an old CVA. I sent in the serial number on my old HUNTERBOLT and will wait and see what they say.
