Shot a few rounds sabotless today. I was surprised by the 200 yard group.

Dead on at 120 and six inches low at 200. I held over with my 300 yard high power reticle.

ok..makes sense. Are you going to stick with the sabotless load or go back to sabots? Are you re-sizing the barnes for the pac-nor barrel?

Honestly, the sabot groups are not consistent unless I slow them down. To rule out the stock, I bedded it in a boyds thumbhole varmint stock. I will have to post a pic.
It shoots so well sabotless that I doubt it will ever see another sabot. I don't mind the extra drop considering the the additional down range knock down power.
The 250tez comes out of the pack measuring .2505" which is a perfect fit for the pacnor. They are tight. I plan to have Swinglock put my drop in a sizing die so I can resize barnes originals and other jacketed projectiles. I didn't try any other powder charges. When I get down to the river bottoms to shoot at 300 and 400 yards, I will post those groups too.
