CVA Paramount

I just ordered one to replace my well-used (and abused) TC Impact. Anyone tried any other bullets other than their pricey 285 gr aero tips? Sabots with a smaller bullet?

Well, the response has been underwhelming--but to whet your appetite here's what the UPS driver left at my door moments ago. First pass out of the box I can say this build would be what I would expect of a premium prosumer grade centerfire rifle and well packaged EXCEPT FOR ONE THING ()--in a classic "what were they thinking?" the one-piece ramrod comes PACKAGED LOOSE inside the barrel's bore at the muzzle end!! The rod itself shows paint and metal wear where it contacted the bore--I'm afraid to look inside the bore itself. I'm gonna have to call CVA and get enlightened on that piece of package engineering.

After all, how often do you see a smokepole with a 20 MOA base and Nightforce scope?
