Hate to see how you do when you're serious!
Nice shooting. What rifle? What did you change to get the two different groups?
Sabotloader was kind enogh to send me a .40 cal 195 grain Liegh bullets to try. I was impressed how well they shot with the first and only load I tried . 70 grains Blackhorn 209 with Harvester smooth blue sabots. I am sure i could shrink these groups . Groups were right at .75 center to center. Distance was 105 yards. This gun is a old .45 1-20 Disk . Stock is just a plastic thumbhole . No bedding . This gun will shoot considerably better sabotless . If I had more time and bullets I am sure i could get my groups down to .5 MOA .I think these bullets would be a awsome hunting bullet inside of 200 yards.
I will be buying some of these bullets to try next hunting season. They will make a awsome hunting bullets for kids . For that matter anyone as long as distances remain reasonable . I am sorry i should of taken a picture of the bullets before shooting.
My bad fellows .Trying to learn how to post pictures
lol 105 yards
Lehighs bullets do shoot good, but wait till you see their performance on game. Its a real eye opener.
Nice shooting Doug!
Here is a picture of the Lehigh 40 cal ML bullets - you can see the 40-195 as compared to the others...
nice shooting , Doug
Ignorant me,.....what kind of base and rings are those? They look super tough.
The reason my groups moved . I should of allowed the barrel cool between shots . I noticed as my barrel heated up my groups moved lower . I was very impressed how well the bullets shot with no load development. I literally shot one shot after another. I am positive with some load development I could easily get my groups down to .5 MOA .
That is a Knight base with Nightforce lightweight rings and a Sightron scope
Doug, you plan on trying them at long range?
No , I think they would make a awsome hunting bullet inside of 200 yards. Not heavy enough nor good enough BC for long range . I have 3 daughters and take youg kids hunting every year. I like this type of bullet for reduced loads. When i take someone hunting I keep the shots under 100 yards . Most times I have the hunters use one of my guns . This Type of bullet fits my needs.
