Nice. What combination are you shooting to achieve this? How is recoil? How is accuracy? Thanks in advance.

62 gr. of H4198 pushing a 40 cal. 200 gr. SST in a Light Blue sabot. Just a touch under a 1" 3 shot group at 100 yrds.

Recoil isn't exactly pleasant but it's not too awful brutal. I really wanted to shoot the Barnes 195s this year but ran out of time. I'm going to have to knurl them to get them to group.

50 yards- that's about all the distance I have at most of my stands. I hold 1" high at 100 and I am within 2" on the target.

50 yards. Most of my shots will be less unless I happen to find them standing in the open field at daylight then I wont take the shot past 100 yards with open sights.

Just about dead on at 50. Where I hunt, most shots are in the 50 yard range, sometimes closer.

I use 70 yd for muzzle load. I think it is best to consider where you hunt and what shots would be presented. 85% of my shots would be under 70 yds.
