Hunting in close quarters happens more times than you’d think and any good ol' truck needs an equally as reliable passenger in the form of a truck gun. Budget-friendly rifles are a dime a dozen, but the Cascade SB is something a bit different. This affordable gun offers all the great features and quality that CVA is known for at a price that won’t break the bank.

Long the leader in both muzzleloading rifles and single-shot centerfires, CVA has applied its nearly 50 years of experience into making one of the best budget bolt-actions on the market. The Cascade was CVA’s first-ever bolt-action centerfire rifle and new to the Cascade series in 2022 is the SB (short barrel). The Cascade SB has all the great features of the original Cascade, but with a shorter barrel.

This rifle was developed for use in tight quarters, commonly found in hunting blinds, especially when using a suppressor. These rifles also make the perfect passenger as your go-to truck rifle for varmint hunting.

Calibers included in the series are the ever-popular 6.5 Creedmoor, as well as the .308 Win—both supporting an 18” barrel—and a 300 Blackout with a 16.5” barrel. Like the original Cascade, the SB series features a suppressor-ready threaded muzzle so you can easily add your favorite suppressor up front. Available in Graphite Black Cerakote and Veil Tac Black Camo. The Cascade SB is the perfect hunting partner.

If you’re looking for a new rifle for the whitetail stand or one to ride along on predator hunts, look no further, CVA’s Cascade SB is the perfect choice.
