I have 85 of these. Three boxes of 24 are un-opened. If anyone uses a .54 inline rifle they can have them..I cannot use them in my .54 Renegade or my .50 Triumph..D91DCFD3-9E60-407E-B8FD-4A7AE7E81229.jpeg

Frank, why cant you use them in your Renegade? Are they not shooting well? I ask because I have a .54 Renegade and would love to shoot those.

They are tough to load in my Renegade.
I have shot that rifle 5000+ times.
I have never had to use a hammer to seat a bullet.
Granted, once loaded, they shot well.
But not for me.
I will not ship them.
If you can’t pick them up yourself, maybe you know someone who will.

Try a different sabot and see if they load any easier. MMP makes some that will ease the effort, as do others...

I have decided to try an experiment…Normally I shoot a .530 round ball with a .015 patch For a total diameter of .560…The bullets in the .54 sabot measure exactly .500. I am going to load these bullets with two .015 patches…This will measure .560 just like the lead bullet load…About 80 grains of PYRODEX should be just right….Stay tuned..
