I too use a very similar load. I've tried Power belts, Barnes TMZs, and a couple others but have settled on the Hornady SSTs due to some accuracy and penetration issues. Blackhorn is the only way to go for powder IMO.running very similar load: cci magnum 209 primer, 100 gr Blackhorn 209 powder, federal bor loc 350 gr lead bullet. Out of CVA accura v2
I did quite a bit of load testing yesterday with an Accura V2 and a few combinations I had available. Working on a load for Utah Muley Hunt this fall.What have you CVA guys found is the best powder/projectile combo for the Accura V2?
What size or bullet are you purchasing when you say Hornady SST's? A link would be great as im unfamiliar with this load. Continue to hear the same messageI too use a very similar load.

Thank you for sharing a load that works for you.My .50 Cal Accura V2 shoots well with this combo. I haven't tried many different load combinations because this one produces 1-1.5 MOA groups from a bench using peep sights which is plenty good for me.
110-120 grains (by volume) Blackhorn 209 under a 250 grain Thor. Federal 209A primers.
Exactly the same load I have been shooting for the last 4 seasons.My best load so far was Hornady SST 250gr with Harvester crush rib sabots over 90 by vol. BH 209. Was very accurate to 250 -300 yds but not super fast in my Accura V2. It also matches the BDC on my Bushnell Trophy DOA 250 scope well.
Yes. I have shot plenty of the no excuses 495 in my little wolf over a felt wad and 85 grains 777. It is accurate and hits HARD.I have a T/C Omega, but wanted a ML better capable with fullsize conicals so bought a CVA Accura V2 thinking it would be the ticket.........and then I found out that they aren't designed for any lead conicals over 400gr. I wanted to shoot the 460gr No Excuses. Has anyone tried anything above 400gr in their CVA?
