      Acadamy has these CVA single shots at low prices.$180 unscoped $230 with a really crappy Konus 3-9×32.Available in .223 .243 and 7mm-08.They are ugly and not exactly a joy to shoulder.Opted for the .223 and all they had left was the scoped version.Got a box each of Monarch 55gr.fmj and Federal American Eagle in 50 gr. jhp.Not a lot of time to mess with it today but got the scope zeroed for the 50 grain jhp’s.Took my time letting the barrel cool 10-15 minutes between shots.Thought things were going ok at 50 yards with just under one inch group appearing.Moved out to 100 yards.Mind you these are only 3 shot groups but I got right at one inch at 100 yards with the JHP’s.The FMJ’s were a bit over 3″ but hey….what did you expect?Consider it good brass for reloads.Quite pleased after one afternoon with it.The trigger compared to a Handirifle is like night and day.All in all it will make an excellent truck gun.Can’t wait to see what it’ll do with a scope that focuses and handloads it likes.Already thinking of getting one in .357 or .44mag

      OP, please post a link to the sale Items, or an explanation of what ” Acadamy” is, and how to contact them.

      Thanks for that Artful.Should realized some folk wouldn’t have an Acadamy nearby.I’m sure they DO have some store sells these.Cabelas has the same rifles but they want a few $$$ more for them.Acadamy was just an army/navy surplus store when I first moved to Austin and the had some pretty good deals on fishing tackle too.They have grown somewhat in the last 30 or so years

      It also helps when you spell Academy with an e, and not Acadamy with an a , when referring to Academy Sports + Outdoors stores.
      Neat stores that carry a lot of products , fishing and hunting / shooting.
