    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 break the rod. i don't know if i ever got it seated against the bh209 powder.

    Ive heard a couple people say their Wolf barrels were tighter than some other CVA models.

    Try to get them real close to 20# in a clean barrel. I know people like to load and shoot using BH, but land riding bullets can be different.
