One 50 gr pellet seems pretty weak to me. If you use pellets I'd stick to 2 pellets equalling 100 gr. Trust me, you'll get good accuracy, won't push the bullet too fast, except maybe with Power Belts, and the kick will be minimal. With Power Belts I think it depends on the individual rifle. We've all heard good and bad about them. My son loves them but I much prefer the T/C Shockwaves. He has a CVA Optima Elite and I an Optima Pro. One thing I like about the Shockwaves is that once seated I know it will stay put till fired. In many rifles the Powerbelts fit pretty loose and that just makes me nervous to say the least. I know Paul, PA Ridgerunner, feels the same about them. You have an excellent rifle and I hope it brings you many an enjoyable and successful hunt.
Thanks! I have so far enjoyed shooting the rifle and hunting with it. I have a 11 more days of season left and i am hoping to get a deer before then. Furthermore I noticed that also about the Power belts being loose fitting. It practically loads itself. Where the TC shock waves you have to load with a little effort.
