Default Finally got to shoot too!

Finally got a chance to shoot that new CVA Wolf I got for Christmas today. I will say for a lower priced gun it did well. I had my father in law with me and he hasn't been feeling to good so I cut the shooting short. Sorry I have no pictures to share. I started with 2Pyrodex 50 gr pellets and 245 gr power belts. Within 4 shots I had it shooting OK and started to sight my scope in. I swabbed with a damp patch after every two shots with a mix of windsheild washer fluid and alcohol. So far the Pyrodex pellets are working good, I'll try some loose RS next time I go down. This is my first ML so I was pleasently surprised how it shot for a lower priced gun. Looking forward to improve my grouping......I think I'm hooked.

Great! It is always nice when you have a successful trip...

You will find in the long run that shooting loose power will be less expensive that pellets + you can tailor your loads...

Keep having fun and staysafe....

It sounds like you had an excellent day even though you had to cut it short. The rifle will only get better in the accuracy department the more you shoot it and get used to it. It sounds like you have a real good shooter there. Have fun and be safe.
