Since I got my Harvester order in this evening I decided to grab the Apex, 110gr Blackhorn209 and the 300gr Harvester Scorpion PT Golds with Hrvester E-Z Load " Black Smooth" Sabots.

Took my first shot, made adjustments and then took 3 more. I just laughed out loud after the last shot because I couldn't believe I nailed the perfect load the first time out of the box.

I did cheat though, I left my Caldwell tack driver bag rest out in the rain and so its stiff until the sun comes out to bake it soft again, so that left me with my FCX lead sled. I haven't shot off of it in MONTHS believe it or not. My head sure appreciated it though! No headaches today for a change.

Blackhorn209 is the next best thing to smokeless powder. Major improvement over 777 or Pyrodex. What fps are you getting with that load?

150 yards and then went to 100 yards where I could set up my chronograph. It was set out at 10 feet.

110gr Blackhorn209
300gr PT Gold with E-Z load sabot
CCI 209M primer
10 minutes between shots to keep bore cool and consistent.

It was n ice to see that there was only Aprox. 1" of drop from 100 yards to 150 yards.
