I usually never e-mail anyone, but I have to say, I've shot a 100 rounds through my Knight Long Range Hunter since October. The Harvester is the best sabot on the market by far. Took the 300 grain Scorpion PT Gold tipped out to 300 on paper with very tight groups. As for kills, nothing to brag on the animal, shot yearling fawn and a huge doe, but the wound channel was massive. Also trying you boat tail sabot with the Barnes TMZ, no kills yet but very accurate on paper. Thanks again for a great sabot, in my mind the only sabot. --- Aaron from Riverton, IL
I hunted the same 8 point buck all during bow season last year and could never get him close enough for a shot. The first Saturday of muzzleloading season I saw him 5 minutes after legal shooting time and passed. The second Saturday at two minutes left in the season he walked out at 151 yards I fired my traditions pursuit with 120 grains of blackthorn 209 and he only went 35 yards with massive wound channel. The bullet penetrated his front shoulder and exited his rib cage. This is a picture of me and my 180 pound 22 inch wide 8 point it was the fifth time I saw this buck! Great product and I just sent you an order for two more packs. Thank you for a great product. --- Mark from Dutton, VA using Scorpion PT Gold
Dear folks at Harvester: I am a combat veteran of Iraq, I was blessed with the opportunity to go on a wounded warrior muzzle load deer hunt here in MO at Clearwater Lake. Using your 50 cal. black Crush Rib Sabot helped enable me to harvest a nice doe . Your product preformed great sending the bullet where I aimed. thanks again for making a fine product. --- Stephen from Belleview, MO
I am a huge fan of Thompson / Center Arms and I purchased a .45 X 209 barrel for my Encore.
I did this with the idea that I could get a little more range out of smaller diameter bullets.
I have tried a number of different sabots and none of them loaded easily.
My next option was I tried Hornady Great Plains bullets.
They loaded easily enough but the accuracy I was getting was not what I was expecting.
The best it would do is 2" groups at 50 yards, I know the gun and I could do better.
Option number three was 225 gr. CVA Powerbelts in 45 caliber, but finding them at the local shops was a problem.
The accuracy was twice about 1" at 50 yards, but paying $1 a round for just the bullets didn't make sense to me.
I saw an ad in a Midway USA catalog for the Saber Tooth bullets, this led me to checking out your website.
Customer service sent me a sample pack of the Crushed Rib Sabot with 200gr. Hornady XTP bullets.
I tested the load and it hit just about 2" higher than the CVA Powerbelts, lighter bullets will produce flatter trajectory.
In the final minutes of Missouri's Alternative Methods season a doe provided me with an easy 40 yard broadside shot.
As I started to field dress the deer and I found another plus to using the Crushed Rib Sabots.
CVA Powerbelts were damaging a lot of meat on the deer that I have used them on.
The smaller diameter bullets I think caused less damage to the meat with similar bullet placement.
So in summary the Crushed Rib Sabots have a flatter trajectory, are less expensive, load easy and do less damage to the meat. --- Alan from Fulton, MO
