For the most accurate load you need to have a pretty tight bullet sabot combination in you barrel. The diameters of the sabots will help you achieve that. Same goes for to tight of a load. Check the measurements and go with a thinner sabot so the bullet sabot combiation loads easier. It sounds easy, but you really need to shoot a few combiations in your Muzzleloadeer to see what it likes.flati said:I'm shooting a Thompson Center Encore .50, how do I use this information to select the best (most accurate) bullet/sabot combo?
Without slugging your barrel, it may not help a lot until you try some and see if the work or not, and then at least you have a starting point to go larger or smaller in diameter.flati said:I'm shooting a Thompson Center Encore .50, how do I use this information to select the best (most accurate) bullet/sabot combo?
Nah, but try the MMP std. blacks for those .452's. That's what I use for my 250 gr. .452 XTP's and they rock.OptimaAndy said:after looking at this and REALLY paying attention i figured that the sabots i bought from cabelas that were supposed to be the hph 12 or 24s which is the ones that come with the SW i wanted to use with the gold dot 45 colt .452 gdhp 250 grain bullet, they sent me the mmp short black. Using that sabot the GD hits all over the place but if you use a SW sabot they hit in the same spot as the SW.
Anyone want some short blacks at a real good deal?
