I shot sabot-less last year used 275 gr match hunters with a fiber wad and 72 gr of H 4198. I had to resize mine with an adjustable die. I sized them a tad small and knurled them a little with a file to fit. They shot great..!

McGowan Remington 700ML conversion.
250gr. Barnes TEZ over 10/50 IMR-SR 4759/IMR4198.
Wool wad, CCI 209M.

I put a slight knurl on them.

They shoot lights out.

So they were too big for your bore to start with??
I am not sure understand what is meant by re-sizing.
I am going to try TEZ's and 275 mh.. I have some wool wads and veggie wads.
Going to try a 4759/4198 duplex.

I am telling you don't get a Cronograph. They just bring on more questions that will need answering.

Get a Magnetospeed chrony and you shouldn't have to worry about shooting it.

If you currently reload then you are a step ahead in the areas of charge measurement, strict attention to detail, etc. Removing the sabot removes the "safety net" so to speak, requiring strict attention to detail. It is trickier getting the bullets sized to fit properly when going sabotless. I use a wool wad under the projectile to keep moisture out and keep the powder compacted tightly. Also, you don't have to wait between shots.

I need someone to explain the process of re-sizing the bullets.
Also not sure about full form and smoothe.. Hoping bullets either fit out of package or maybe with knurling..
