Hello Alan, again thanks for the sample sabots. I went to Range today and here are the results with Harvester Crush Rib Sabot.
Rifle: Acura older model .50 cal
Bullets: 240 grain Speer JHP
240 grain Sierra JHC
260 grain Harvester PT Gold
100 grains Blackhorn 209 Rifle shot at 100 yards using 90 grains of Blackhorn 209 for both 240 grain loads.
Speer shot 1-3/4 in group, Sierra shot 1-1/2 group, PT gold 260 shot 1 inch group. PT Gold shoots the same 1 in groups out of my omega also...Awesome bullet.
Also, I am pleased with the Green Rib Sabots using the 44 cal handgun bullets by Speer and Sierra. --- Chuck from Trucksville, PA
Good guns, good bullets, and if I do my part, good shots, and I can count on Harvester Muzzleloading products....they flat out perform at the range and in the field! The picture is of the 6" target @ 50 yards I used as a "final" sight in. The 12 o'clock spot is a cluster of two 250 grain Sabertooth out of "El KaBong"....the third was one I dumped....was getting fatigued at this point....actually, you can just see it way down there at the bottom of the target.
The string of 3 at the 7 O'clock spot are the 260 grain Funnel Point Mags out of the BuckStalker.
The 3 oddballs from the 8 o'clock to 9 o'clock spots are Sabertooth 270s out of the BuckStalker.....all these = dead deer no matter how you slice it, but I like clustered shots...especially with open sights! --- Steve from MI
Work schedules only gave me a couple days to hunt during Iowa's early muzzleloader season so I made the most of it and filled the freezer with this little six pointer near dusk on October 18th. I was hunting from the ground and my shot came at about 20 yards. When I field dressed this buck I could not believe the damage to both lungs that your 260 grain Scorpion PT Gold caused. It was like a bomb went off in the chest cavity.
Thanks again for making an excellent bullet and for providing great customer service.
