CVA Optima Elite Question
Hello, I'm gettnig back into hunting after a four year hiatus (babies :D)

I'm looking at getting the CVA Optima Elite .50/.270 combo in RT/SS for whitetail and wild hog. Does anyone have experience with one and if so, would it be worth dropping about $700 for it and a Nikon Buckmaster scope?


Soli Deo Gloria!

RE: CVA Optima Elite Question
Well, since either no one has any experience with an Optima Elite combo, or nobody gives a rip, I'll try another question.

I have a friend who has a .308 that he is willing to sell for pretty cheap. Now, I like the .308, but this rifle is a pump. I understand that bolt action rifles are supposed to be the most accurate. Since I will more than likely never be shooting past the 200 yd mark with most shots coming under 100, will the difference in accuracy between a pump and bolt make a hugh difference?

Also, what makes the bolt more accurate?

What kind of pump gun? Ive got a remington 760 in 308,, its a very accurate rifle out too 300 yards on deer sized game. Those remington pumps are alot more accurate than alot of people give them credit for!

Thank you for your reply, Swampy.

It is a Remington and he believes it is a 760. But now he's not sure he wants to sell it. :(

Guess I'll hold out for the Optima Elite.

I have the CVA Optima elite combo in .50/.308black fleck thumbhole stock in stainless. I love the gun. The Bargerra barrels are really nice if you ask my opinion. I have a Nikon Buckmaster 3x9x40 on the muzzleloader and a 4.5x14x40 BDC on the .308. For the money (basically 2 guns for $650-700) I believe that you will be extremely satisfied. I know that I am.

Just for a reference, I put down my Winchester Model 70 Super black shadow 7mm wsm to shoot the .308 because I just enjoy shooting that setup that much.
