Hornady 50 Cal Sabot Low Drag w/ 45 Cal 300 SST Bullet
Poor Terminal Performance
using 100 gr pyrodex these bullets do not expand. Last year 2 deer were easy shots and left no blood never to be recovered. 2 last year were recovered but no blood trail. exit wounds were very small. This year with this new box 1 deer recovered but no blood trail and again a 45cal size exit hole. I have now switched to 300gr XTP Mag. They shoot the same as the SST. Have seen XTP Mag terminal performance from a friends deer. they expand nicely. The SST are very accurate on paper but are not suitable for hunting.

Bench shooting: Grouped 3 bullets inside 2" bullseye at 100 yds, all 3 bullet holes touching one another. Field shooting: Dropped a deer in its tracks at 235 yards. Most accurate muzzleloading bullet on the market!

Hunting Deer. Accurate,easy loading best sabbot I have used. Dead on at 50 yards,at100yds dead on. Dont shoot much farther. But took shot a 125 yda round was 3/4 low. Love the 300 gr. Dislikes non at this time.
