I'd stick with the SST in a sabot. They'll be harder to load but should be more accurate.

A Hornady XTP would also be a good choice. Cheaper too \:\)

SST gets my vote!
Havnt had good luck with fpb, seems like the skirt on them doesn't expand to seal off the powder charge sometimes.

I shot the FPB for 3 years before I switched to smokeless last this year.I loved the bullet,it never let me down,in 3 years I think I killed 5 deer with it,and all was pass thrus with good blood trails. And it gave me a 1.5 to 2 inch group at 100yds all day long with 2 777 pellets (100gr)
