I was shooting yesterday trying to find the best load for deer season. Of course mine loves the 300gr hornady xtp with the MMP short sabots that came with the rifle.

I am trying to find a better bullet/sabot combo to you.
I am going to re try .458 Barnes Original ssp w/ MMP Orange and Harvester BCR

I am also going to try the .452 hornady 300gr SST. I think I have read so much I have gotten confused, but the best sabot combo for this is the MMP Short?

Is the MMP black short and the MMP HPH12 the same? I can't seem to find the black short.


Also what anti seize do you like? I would prefer something with less grease but have read the tape increases rust?

I am also shooting AA 5744. I am going to try to shoot 44gr assuming accuracy with acceptable / MOA

I would suggest not to load your bullet before your powder. \:\)

You should also try any other powder than 5744. All will be faster and cleaner. 5744 is good reliable powder but among smokeless it is dirtier than say SR4759 or RL7. I haven't shot 4198 so can't compare to that.

Sabots are subjective. If you have a tight barrel or loose will dictate which sabot you use. Get a few different and push them through your barrel without a plug in. You want tight but not so much you have to stand on the rod to push them though. They are fairly cheap so you can try a bunch.

Definitely try those BOs with the BCRs and MMP orange. One of the best combos out there. Cheaper though would be Rem 300 HP. Not as aero but great bullet and tougher than XTP. Aldo, many have had great luck with the 325gr FTX.

If you want to try a bunch of different bullets and sabots and don't want to buy a box go here and he can sell you 10 of each mix and match. http://smokelessmz.com/index.html

I use Permetex brand anti seize. Just a dab on the threads with a Q-tip. Messy but doesn't require much.
