Nice shooting! Good range report, thanks for posting :tu: Looking forward to the 250gr TEZ report. Just curious, did you index your sabots?

All sabots looked the same after shooting. Even the ones using the brake. It just didn't shoot as good with the brake.

Great report. Am I mistaken, or did 58 grains produce the best 3 shot group?

No it didn't. I thought that at first too. The third shot is on the edge of the paper to the right.

Indexing sabots is when you try to line up the sabot petals with the rifling marks. With an 8 groove barrel and 4 petal sabot, 2 lands per petal. It's one more way of making every shot the same as possible. Some say hogwash, I think it helps.
