New Powerbelt Aerolite in the CVA Wolf
Finally was able to get the Wolf out today. Beautiful warm weather, T shirt weather actually.
I started with some 300gr Aerolite Powerbelts, 100gr Blackhorn209 "71gr Weight" CCI 209M primers. 100 yards.
First and second shots are touching and #3 went off a bit.
1- 3/8" center-center
Switching over to the 250gr Aerolite Powerbelt and the same powder charge as before.
And no BS, We have about 6 to 12" of snow on the ground and it was 72* yesterday and today its 60*.
T shirt weather i tell you!
Second trip to the range
Went out to the range again even though the wind was horrible. I had gusts so bad that it took my rifle case and threw it half way down range.
I also threw some 100gr blackhorn209 and 250gr Aerolite Powerbelts down range as well.
Im not sure what it measured center to center but a new 2010 penny covers it. "Turned out to be 1/4" center to center"
I didn't have a pass out feeling today after i squeezed off the 3rd and final shot, just almost puked LOL. I was looking through the scope and when the smoke cleared i was like WTF, did it cut another hole in the center of the last 2 shots?
Cool down baby! It matters. It gave it around 3 minutes to cool down between shots.
Pretty impressive. Have you tested the expansion yet?
Is CVA a good ML??
Yeah they are a good ML'er.
The Aerolites use a copper coating and then the other "graphite" looking coating you see on the outside of the bullet.
I havent been to impressed with the bullets performance when shooting into sand and wet news paper but before i make a final decision, i put in for a new mexico deer tag to see if i could test one of these bullets out on a big boy down there.
First testing on video:

That's the problem with PowerBelts. Hopefully, they'll work on your hunt.
Is CVA made in the USA?
can't beat those groups.
Thompson center seems to be more money then CVA, T/C that much better?
