What is your deer load for the Savage Smokeless M/L.
I was looking thru the post and find very little information.
I lost the sheet of paper where I kept my info on loading.
Also info on sabots and cushioning of sabots.
Thanks

Here's my good enough load. Still trying to find time to tweak:

40 gr VV N110
250 gr Hornady SST
MMP black Sabot

Wakeman recommends 37 gr of N110 as his pet load in the above bullet/sabot combo. I would like to try that. Low recoil and good deer devastation. I just need some quality range time.
