Default CVA hunter 35 whelen

I finally decided to hang up the ole muzzle loader and buy myself a 35 whelen. I went to St. Landry lumber (Austin Outdoors) yesterday and purchased the cva hunter, Nikon buckmaster scope, dnz mounts and a box of federal fusions 200 grain ammo. Nothing special about the looks of the gun but, shooting this thing!......once bore sighted it took me 3 shots to get it pin point zeroed at 100 yrs. I shot 2 more rounds and all three rounds were touching. One big hole, I was pretty impressed! I know I'm late with this modern day primitive stuff but if anyone is interested in purchasing the 35, 45-70, .444 etc. I highly recommend the cva for the money! (not recommended for kids lol)

That is a massive hole!!

I just purchased the CVA Apex in 35 Whelen. Haven't even had a chance to sight her in yet. Can't wait to pop a few rounds off!!

I have a 45-70 and just purchased a Elite Stalker 35 this past Monday. Looking forward to get it sighted in this weekend and ready to use the following.

I have a CVA 45.70 with the Bergara barrel, been knocking down deer with it for the last 3 yrs or so, it's accurate and deadly.....

Always try and shoot them BEHIND the shoulder with the Whelen. Minimal meat lost and great blood trails

I have the cva scout in .35 whelen. Love it so much that is all I hunt with now. I killed 6 deer with it last year and never had to track one. They all died within sight. And yes, don't shoot em in the shoulders.
