I'd like to tag onto this story as well. I shot my first doe ever with my CVA Optima this morning!! Got into the tree stand and 20 minutes later was filling out and attaching my tag. It all worked perfect this time. Finally!!! I shot a .50 cal, 245 grain hollowpoint powerbelt with 90 grains of RS powder. Blew the top half of the heart off at 40 yards. The bullet mushroomed perfectly and was between the ribs and the hide. I had a blast, can't wait till next year now.
