I dont know knights that well, owned one for almost a week before trading it off. It did however love 80gr american pioneer 3f and a 295gr powerbelt.

All of my other cva inlines are 1:28 and everything from the 245 all the way to the 338gr Platinum powerbelt doe awesome with 80-100gr Blackhorn209

I have had a CVA Hunterbolt mag forabout 6 years that I also purchased at wally world & am very happy with it. shot great right out of the box. I am with Ronn as I have not hunted with it for a few years. I too bow hunt during the ML season save $16.00 & my rifle tag. Frontier glad to see you like it

HM, I have the same problems myself. I think they're making the dang targets a LOT smaller nowadays..

As I said prior, Most all my rifles digest 100 grs of whatever I loading and all shoot pretty well. The TC 250 gr shock waves with the superglide sabots shoot nice and currently I'm testing Barnes ML bullets with really good paper accuracy also in 250 gr. I'm not a pellet person. Take this test. Load 2 50 gr pellets and your favorite bullet and fire, then load 100 gr of Black Horn or 777 same bullet and fire. Now report back here on what your experience was.

Well after all of the scrubbing and applying the bore coat, shes still dead on @ 50 yards. A bit to hot to shoot this early so it looks like evening will be the time to shoot 100 yards.

The 1/8" flash channel seems to be cleaner but i only fired 5 shots at 50 so i guess another 5 or so shots will tell me if it was worth drilling out or not.

Loads super smooth shot after shot!

Starting to feel like salt in the wound, just kidding FG. Once you got everything together next will be hunting with it, not too far off. If you need another project I need a cedar chest re-finished. I'm not giving it away though!

yeah earlier i checked it out at 50 as bore coat usually throws the scope off due to it tightening up the bore. It was dead on this time which is good. Its still dead on @ 100.

Out where i live, if we dont have wood and the power goes out, they'll find us during spring melt LOL.
