Went back to the range today to try the 300gr xtp's and I like what I see.Same set up as yesterday except I was useing a 300gr xtp instead of the 250gr xtp.I'll definatly be shooting the 300gr xtp's from now on.Useing 44grs AA5744 with a harvester red crush rib sabot.. I have a guy on dougsmessageboards.com sending me some .458 bullets and sabot to try.I may try them,but as far as im concerned these 300gr xtp's are shooting plenty good enough for hunting purposes.

Looks much better, Cecil. I thought a 300 gr. might tighten it up for you a little. I've been advised to put my 300 gr. loads 1.5-2" high at 100 yds. to give a decent hold on 200 yd shots.

When you get some time (and money since the bullets are pretty expensive) to experiment a little more, get some of the 300 gr. Barnes Origionals and the MMP Orange sabots and give them a try. I think they are a .458 bullet. I know three MLIIs that they really shoot well in with the 44 gr. of AA5744, and the job they do on big deer is pretty awesome as well.

You may even try the .458 325 grain FTX, they shoot great in my ml2 with 5744. Nothing wrong with the xtp's, but ftx's fly a little flatter out at longer ranges.

Assassin - I shoot the BO 300 gr and yes they do fly great but there is a new king of the hill for long range if you want to double down for the price. They are the Match Hunter from Parker. NOT a .458 bullet (.451 or .452 IIRC) but an improvement just the same. Price reflects the improved aerodynamics and construction. I have plenty of the Barnes so I'll shoot them till I'm out but when I need a resupply I'm probably going with Parkers for hunting and XTPs for target practice and other than long range.

Is this the bullet you speak of?

Sounds like Mr. Parker has built a better mouse trap! \:\)
LIKE the looks of these!

Course, if your current bullets ain't broke, no need to fix them.
