    My new hog thumper. Started life as a 25" CVA HUNTER chambered in 450Bushmaster.
    Bbl chopped and conical brake added. Now bbl is 17.75" OAL.
    Trigger was set by me at. 3lbs 10ozs with NO creep.Will be reloading the Hornady 200gr FTX at moderate vels. Will also try just above sub using Trail Boss.
    These guns have a super heavy contour bbl. And even looseing that much bbl,still weighs 7lbs 10ozs. --- pruhdlr 20210710_111840.jpg 20210710_111850.jpg

    That is quite the unique setup. I thought CVA just made muzzleloaders.

    Nice looking rifle. That should get the job done.
