Here It Is ML'er Season Again ......

Post by redarrow » December 3rd, 2018, 12:13 pm

....and here I am asking the same ol question I asked last year. I'm shooting a CVA Optima Pro in .50 cal.Using Barnes TNT BT #45180.With the EZ load sabots (blue). Well they ain't so easy . Dang near have to hammer them in .I think maybe it was Tom ICEDEDTURKES that recommended a different sabot that is much easier to load in tight bores. Any suggestions would be appreciated.I had originally used the yellow sabots,and they were worse.

Ever tried a Power Belt? They get a bad rap, but they worked fine for me. Of course, I always loaded mine a good bit lighter than most.

I used them awhile back and switched to Barnes and they gave me better groups. I just ordered the Harvester sabots that Tom suggested I try. Hope they work out.
