Mine is on the way and I have not seen it yet. That is good to know.

Does anyone have a ideal what velocity I should be able to get out of this gun with a 120 grain bullet?

To give some reference - I got 2672 fps with Nosler's new NCH, 16 inch barrel, shooting Nosler factory 120 gr. BT ammo.

Ernie, what do you think I should be able to get with 140 grain bullets?

2340 fps with 140's...Very mild load with my Dominator.
But it shoots great, and for the distances I will hunt at, I don't need more speed. I still have 1800 fps at 1/4 mile, which means the bullet would perform well out to 600 yards. I won't hunt game that far with it though.
Will have a bolt rig in a month or two and I will have better data.

How long is the barrel on your Dominator?

I got my CVA Scout V2 6.5 Creedmoor last week. I took it to the range to shoot it to just make sure everything functioned correctly before I put it up for next Christmas.

I did check the velocity shooting Winchester's Deer Season 125 grain factory load and was happy to see it was going 2567 fps. I think that will do very nicely for my deer hunting out to 200 yards.

What does everyone here think?

I will spend this year working with my CVA Scout V2 in 357 mag. I hope to kill a deer or two with it next season.
