Default Hurray CVA Pistol Chrono Results!!!

Well I finally did it. I know that it will make some people very happy. Here's the story. All loads were at 90 grains BH209 with Crushed Rib Sabot. I did two different bullet weights. Hornady 250 XTP and Hornady 300 XTP Mag.

Hornady 250 xtp BC .146
Muzzle Velocity 1520
100 yards Velocity 1166 Energy 755 lbs

Hornady 300 XTP Mag BC .200
Muzzle Velocity 1458
100 yards Velocity 1200 Energy 959ft lbs
150 yards Velocity 1108 Energy 817ft lbs

I didn't bother putting 150 yards for 250grain. Simply put I don't think its got enough power to knock an elk or large muley down. I'm actually shock at these results. I figured the 250 would be flatter shooting then the 300 grain. But when taken as a whole the 300 XTP Mag takes the cake. Which is nice to the fact that my TC Bone Collector uses the same bullet. Recoil is brutal with 300 grain though. Anybody ever shoot a 500 S&W or .454 Casull at max will know what the recoil is like. But boy is it fun to shoot!!!! Eventually I may try 100 grains but I just dont know about handling the pistol at that load. So needless to say this pistol can and eventually will kill something at 150 yards but that is MAX yardage. Glad I bought it and chorno

I think it weighs as much as my tc bonecollector. Now mind it has steel rings and scope. I just wish they would change the grips. CVA uses the hard plastic and i wish they made a houge grip or packmeyre. it would make my hands feel better. Hopfully will take a bear with it this spring.
