So im fixing to bite the bullet on one. Let me hear the ins and outs, dos and donts. A good starter hunting load. I don't plan on any long range until i get it all worked out. I reload and weighing charges is not a problem. From what ive been reading the AA powder and 300 gr. Bullets are about norm. Im tired of the nastiness of blackpowder

Good luck with yours.. I bought one and am having a time getting it to shoot.I've shot it over 70 times,have tried 5 different sabots,6 different bullets,and 4 different powders and have only found 1 load to shoot under 1.5inchs at 100 yds..Everything else has shot around 3 or 4 inches..Im to the point to where Im thinking of selling it and buying a TC muzzleloader.If your close I have some accurate Arms 5744 that your more than welcome to try. If I don't get rid of mine,im seriously thinking of sending it back to Savage,im fed up with it.May just get a Pac Nor replacement barrel..

44 gr aa5744 under a Harvestor Black Crush Rib Sabot/ 0.458 Diameter Hornady 300 gr bullet (#4500).

Allow the gun to cool COMPLETELY between shots.

They are legitimate 200 yard plus whitetail guns.

Just curious as to why on God's green earth anyone would want a rifle that they had to let cool completely between shots to get it to shoot?

Are you kidding? Doesnt sound like you have invested much time with any.weapon. when a barrel gets hot on any weapon, it doesnt matter if its smokeless, blackpowder, or centerfire. Accuracy is going to degrade.
