I went out this morning since getting all the stuff i bought from cecil. I started out with 300 gr. Ftx + harvester rcr, first shot was good left to right and about 5 in. High. Second shot was about an inch to the right. I adjusted 2-1/4 in lower and fired 2 shots both cutting the same hole. These were very difficult to load but if i do my part i think will produce 1" groups maybe a little better. I then fired 3 shots with said bullet and short black mmp sabot. Another 1" group!



The hole highest in elevation on the target is the 2 shot group the other is the short black mmp group



Im a little scared of the ftx though because i have read so many mixed reviews i have some 300 gr xtp and 300 gr. 458 hollw points ordered, but if the 458 is any harder to load than the 452 w/ rcr its probably out of the question. What do yall guys think about the ftx? I know its no comparison to a deer but i dug this out of the ground from behind my target


Keep in mind on the bullet 99.9% of my shots will be within 100 yds and probably 85% within 60-75 yards

Glad your savage shoots good for you. Was this at 100yds? Im convinced my factory savage barrel was way overbore.I couldn't never get a sabot/bullet combo to give me a tight fit.It was always medium loading pressure no matter what I pushed down it.

i found that keeping the sabots in my shirt pocket where my body heat keeps them warm makes them a whole lot easier to load
and cecil are you using the high pressure sabots? you can't use just any in the savage

Cecil has tried most everything, I think he has one of those barrels that just don't like anything you feed it.

The Pacnor .45 will solve that.
