IMGP4799
First and Second Kills with CVA Optima V2 muzzle loading pistol

Description: Connected yesterday morning on this two year old seven pointer and then the doe. Shots were 25 and 20 yards. The buck gave a quartering away shot and dropped in his tracks. The doe was a broad side heart shot and ran about 75 yards.


I am shooting two 50 gr pellets of Pyrodex behind a 240 grain sabatted Hornady XTP.


This load was giving three shot groups at 25 yards leaving one raged hole.


On line reviews give a velocity of 1595 fps for this load.
