I'm sure nobody knows what a pr3112s is, so I looked it for everybody.

It's an Accura V2 camo.

Although some here don't like the CVAs I've found that they shoot more than good enough for any normal hunting situation. Not only the Accuras but the Optimas and Wolfs as well.

If they don't like CVA's, then they haven't owned one.
I've been building them and shooting them for 45 years.
The majority of my front-loaders are CVA.
I've got Traditions, Remington, even Gonic and the CVA's keep up with them all.
Customer support is stellar. 770-449-4687
I dig CVA.

I have a stainless Optima V2 that I use the 250 grain SST in, it shoots them well. I use two 60 grain T7 pellets for deer. I have been very happy with the Optima, it is simple, shoots well and fits me well.

Huntin NC - do yourself a favor. Once you exhaust your supply of those pellets get yourself some loose powder. Pyrodex RS is a good choice and if you want a cleaner burning powder get some Black MZ or Blackhorn 209.
And if you want to save some more money shooting buy your bullets and sabots separately. I've had excellent success with 300 gr .429" and .451" Hornady XTPs and Harvester CR sabots (green or black depending on the bullet diameter).
Another great bullet is the Barnes EZ bullet. A bit more costly and really more than necessary.

You are wrong there
I owned 4. Don't own any now and never will again. I think they suck and are crappy junk and my experience with customer service is the main reason I hate cvas

Interesting..., my experience with customer service has been outstanding, quick responses to my questions and free parts to my door with no questions asked. Possibly, it may have been the way you talked/wrote them, similar to your post
