I shot these sabots the other day. They are the hollow point without the plastic tip. At 50 yards, I was 2" high. At 150 yds I hit in the black four shots in a row.
I was shooting my White Bison Series Muzzleloader with 100 grains of Pyrodex P.
The four shots were shot out of the back of the truck with wind shaking the truck. I only had a thin jacket to brace on the side of the truck. Needless to say, these weren't perfect conditions.
So all in all, I was pleased to shoot that well at 150 yards.
What do you guys think?
Would the plastic tips give me better accuracy?

I shoot the 245 grain Spitfire MZ with 130 grains of 777 pellets in my Encore. Sighted in dead on at 150 yds, it hits the target 2 inches high at 100 yds and 6 inches low at 200 yds. I doubt very seriously that you would gain any noticeable improvement shooting the ballistic tip TMZ.

The polymer tip might give a little better ballistic coefficient. That would be about it.

About what you'd expect good bullet by the way it has dispatched a couple of deer for me,the polymer tip would raise the Ballistic coeefecient some but not much as the slug is short and fat.
