tc encore with a bergara barrel would be the proper way to introduce the gun IMO.

Exactly! It didn't come off a CVA gun. It was made by Bergara.

Just like Powerbelt bullets are made by Powerbelt. (not CVA)

Now i am confused. Is Powerbelt the subject of the sentence or is it the object?

Well I have to agree with Pluckit ont he 50 PRB and blood trails. I too have found them almost non-existant. As for the Maxihunters Dave hates I have killed several deer with them and found them plenty accurate enough out of at least one of my MLs. My friend uses them and gets excellent accuracy. He shot a doe at 110 yds one snowy January day a few years back that I pushed into him. Powerbelts - the biggest does I ever shot was with a 245 gr .50 cal PB. I recovered her but wasn't too impressed with the performance of the bullet. I was a perfect double lung hit with a pass thru but not much tissue damage. My fav bullet is the XTP. This bullet in the .400 cal 200 gr or the .429" 300 gr for the MLs as well as the 240 gr .429" in my handgun has never let me down on dear. No deer I ever shot with either of these went more than 50 yds.

Boy is that the truth. This hot weather is making it even worse. It's not fun to scout in this heat.

The CVA boys have deflected again. The thread started out to be about poor performing bullet. Many of these poor performing bullet were CVA bullet. The CVA boys then began the deflection about the name of these bullet. At least now we know the name of these bad bullet is Powerbelt. Then we were taught the correct name of the barrel. Now we read about the weather in New Mexico. Now, if i refer to you boys as the BPI boys, is that correct? You BPI boys sure are good at deflection, and once again have steered a thread off course. We went from bullets we wouldn't use, to proper naming, to the heat, to the weather in New Mexico. Excellent deflection from the fact that them powerbelt bullet have many detractors.

Ron, do you need a hug? You seem a bit tense lately.
