CVA Wolf Question

Hi All,

Going to pose a question to see if anyone else has experienced this while shooting. Both me and a buddy were out shooting our Wolf's in for the early season. Last year we both had tack drivers even without swabbing inbetween shots. This year we were not where we left off last year and were hitting all over the paper. Scope adjustments were touchy at best. In the end we swabbed after every shot and got them hitting good. The million $$$$$ question is why did things change so much from last year sitting in the safe. Now keep in mind this is not just 1 gun but 2 different guns ( same model & year ) acting the same way. We both left the range scratching our heads but sighted in.

Tnx in Adv.
Frank

Re: CVA Wolf Question

Weather could definately be a factor. He is an example. I have 2 shots withing an in of ea. other at the very top of the target. I move 24 clicks down and 8 to the right. I am not hitting the very bottom of the paper. It also seemed like 1/2 the amount of clicks moved the normal amount? Baffling?????

Re: CVA Wolf Question

are you using pellets? ive seen this pop up on a number of forums. They all went to loose powder and problem solved.

Re: CVA Wolf Question

If you were shooting sabots...could of been plastic build-up. I use CVA Sabot Solvent to remove. Sabot polymer(plastic) fouling is tuff to remove with ordinary cleaner.

Re: CVA Wolf Question

I am using 100 grains of 777 pellets and 295 grain powerbelts. I guess what gets to me is why all of a sudden it starts shooting good and grouping. Not sure ether of these are that problem, but then and again what do I know? LOL!

Re: CVA Wolf Question

Had it happen one day with my Omega and 777 pellets. It was real foggy that day and the pellets were drawing moisture from the air in the open box. Did not realise what was wrong until my fingers started to get black!!

Re: CVA Wolf Question

Hi MQ-1,

That makes sense. Unfortuantley that was not the case on this day and I was shooting the week before with the same results. So I called it a day and came back to it when I went shooting with my buddy. Baffling???????

Re: CVA Wolf Question

Get you some loose powder. I'd max out with 80gr T7 if its grouping fine.
