So a couple weeks ago, on an impulse buy, I picked up a CVA Apex in .308.  I've been wanting something in a .308 since a got rid of my Model 70 Coyote 223 WSSM, but couldn't decide exactly what I wanted.  I had waffled between a Browning X-Bolt and Model 70, but had a hard time parting with that much money. 

I decided to stop into the local large sporting goods chain for some ammo and they had a CVA .308 (black syn./stainless) sitting on the front of the rack, so I nabbed it.  I'll admit I was a little nervous with it being a singleshot (interchangle barrel), but after topping it with a Bushnell 4200 3-9x40 (from SWFA by the way...got a great deal) and taking it out a couple of times, this is a sweet little rifle.  The trigger pull out of the box was crisp, the stock has a great feel to it, seems really well balanced.  Within 5 shots I had it shooting 2'' high at 100 yards with sub-moa groups.  I had no problem hitting the 500 & 600 yard gongs consistently.  This is my first rifle that isn't a bolt action, but I'm really happy with this setup and deer season can't get here soon enough.

Too late...already bought the CVA.  But that's good to know about the X-Bolt.  I didn't really look at them that close.

I saw one of those a few weeks ago. Looks a lot like a Thompson Center Encore. If you want more info on it or on Bergara barrels (which is who made your barrel) heres a good web site.
