Cva optima Load recommendations

Just got a cva optima v2 50 cal with konos scope, blackhorn 209, cci magnum primers. I bought barnes tmz 290 gr and hornaday sst 250 gr. Does anybody have any experience with either of these or how much 209 works with either load? Thanks for your help!

I use Hornady 300 grain sst over 100 grains of Blackhorn 209 to sight my optima in then when it was close i shoot my hunting load which is 290 gr Barnes T-EZ FB with Harvester crush rib sabots. This works very well for me.

I have a CVA Mountain rifle and bought the Barnes TMZ 290's. My friend has the same and loads with 100 grains Blackhorn. He says it is very accurate. I have not shot mine yet. He said the TEZ is too loose.

I shoot the
Barns 250 gr. Spitfire gr-Tex 80 grains blackthorn with the black horn breach plug . I have used 2 50 grain white hots same bullet. Both loads very good groups . The white hots shoot 1 inch higher at 100 yards. Same gun as you.
