Do you have any V2's?
I am sure the gun could group that well at 100 if the shooter would do his part.
What are you throwing down yours?
Hi Hoosier, sorry for the late reply, been a crazy day.
Why dont I have any V2's..first what's the big deal with a QRBP, when have you ever had to FAST remove your BP? not ever for me. Sure it's nice to just turn your BP to remove it and clean it but with the tool with the V1 it only takes me seconds to get mine out. Next I dont shoot BH I shoot Pyrodox and the V1's BP shoots that just fine. Next the Rubber Panels on the stock of the V2 may sound like a good thing but I know water and snow and rubber dont mix, if your holding your MLer and you have rubber panels on the stock or forearm and there wet and your aiming down on a deer and all of a sudden your get a (SQUEAK) from the rubber your done, game over. So I like the regular synthetice stock on the V1 without the possibly noise causing rubber.
Those are the only 2 differnces between the V1 and V2 and they cost you an extra $250+ for these options, I can do with them.
I own nothing but CVA's I have the old Stag Horn and Srag Horn Mag, the Hunter Bolt Manum, the Kodiak and it's big brother Kodiak,plus 3 Accura V1's. Each and every one of them shoots Pyrodox RS Lose Powder or Regular Pyrodox Pellets along with the 240gr XTP mag with the MMP HPH 24 Black Sabots.
In My Accura I shoot 100grs of pyro rs powder with the 240gr XTP and either a WIN W209 Primer or a T7 Primer. This combo gives me 1"+- at 100yds and 1 1/4-1 1/2"+- at 200yds. In the one Accura I had set up for my wife she used 2 50gr Pyro pellets along with the 240gr XTP Mag and the same primers, this gave her as good of groups at 50 and 100yds as I was getting with the 110grs of pyro rs. She since switched to her Kodiak with 1 50gr and 1 30gr Pyro pellet and the 240gr xtp mag. This gave her 1" groups at 50-75 yds and that's as far as she shoots so it was good, I could get better from it.
So as you can see I love the 240gr XTP and Pyrodox. I have never lost one single deer hit with the xtp's, there devestating in deer, I've had entrance holes as big as half dollars. I 've shoot 3 deer at 175yds plus and went clean through them.
I've always been one to make whatever I have work to the best of it's ability, the 240gr xtp helped tons, even with my old $89 Stag Horn I could get excellant groups and have taken many deer with that.
But yea I dont see any need for a V2, My V1's are all I'll ever need.
