Robert & Carmen DrumheiserI am sending you a picture of my son Carmen and myself showing my son's first deer. Carmen harvested this doe at 90 yards using your 50 cal. crushed rib sabots with a Speer 260 grain bullet. The charge was 100 grains of Pryodex (2 pellets). We range tested this load for days, he liked how easy it was to reload with your sabots. We both thank you for such a fine product. It did exactly as you said it would.

James P. BellI shot this antelope in Wyoming on September 5, 1998 with on shot at approximately 80 yards. I used a Harvester 330 grain hard cast bullet with 105 grains off FFG black powder. I find the bullets to be very accurate.

Lee LaChappelleI shot this 7-point buck in Wisconsin with 2 pyrodex pellets behind a 330 grain Harvester at approximately 100 yards. The shot left a 3" diameter wound channel and went through both lungs. Thank you for producing a very fine product.

Michael FrederickIn my state we can only use non jacketed lead bullets, but the problem that I was having was finding a bullet that gave great penetration without expanding too quickly or blowing apart in an animal. I wanted one that would give great penetration and devastating on animal performance consistently. Well in 1999 I was trying my usual early summer testing on wet newspaper of a few bullets and found one that out preformed every one I had ever shot, I was used to getting the usual of about 15 to 18 inches of penetration. The HARVESTER bullets were blowing through the box completely and they were 30 inches deep, so I added another 10 inches of wet paper and got the some result. This process finally found that I was getting from 52 to 58 inches of penetration and the bullets were retaining about 75% of the original weight.

Marc Smith"I used the 250 grain "Saber Tooth bullet". with 110 grains of Hodgdon 777 this past weekend to knock down a beautiful 5x4 mule deer in the Weminuche Wilderness on a backpack bivy hunt. I shot the buck at 137 yards and dropped him dead in his tracks, my farthest open sighted ML kill. I recovered the bullet and was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked."

Thanks for a great product,
Marc Smith
