That is a lot of bullet hanging outside of the sabot. I will have to try them in my 1:22 Pacnor. Would 54 gr of N120 be a good starting point?

I have not shot n120,, I'm sure others on the site have,, The particular Wilson barrel 1 in 20 450-457 barrel does like the bullets a lot, it also shoots a fury 240 open tip very well 40 cal, I really didn't expect the 240 and the 250 to shoot as well as they have I agree with you as a lot of bullet and not much sabot.I've tried them in my 22 twist Paramount did not have near success that I have with the one in 20 Wilson barrel however I have to say this Wilson barrel shoots a little bit of everything it may be my most accurate overall barrel with every bullet I shoot.

That will be close and probably a little faster than 56-57gr of 4198. I would wager you could drop back a couple more grains if needed.

As far as the performance of the 40cal 250gr bonded LT fury bullet I have only recovered one and it was on the aforementioned deer and it was in 2 pieces with the jacket attached to each piece and the the recovered weight was 212gr. Only bullet I have ever recovered with better weight retention was Barnes solids.
