Sorry wrong spot to post.
You might want to put these in the classifieds, good luck with the sale
Tried them in a .30-30 bolt gun that had a great reputation for accuracy and precision, when one box came with the gun, and a friend gave me a second box.
They wouldn't group for beans. They certainly wouldn't group well enough to chuck/rat hunt with, at anything over about 50 yds.
Never bought another box.
Good luck with your sale. Why don't you try the "Ammo/Reloading For Sale" section?
tried some through my 7400, maybe just my rifle but I'd never buy them again
I have never heard anything good regarding accuracy and the accelerator rounds. If I want a .223 bullet to go 3100FPS, I've got an AR. If I need faster I've got a .22-250.
LOL, I remember when these were the rumored "rage" in sniper bullets because they were untraceable... Never mind that you cant hit a pie plate at 100 yards. Such a gimmick.
Yeah that. Folks found this out pretty fast and didn't buy anymore which is probably why they aren't manufactured anymore. :stretcher:
I was in high school when I bought the only box of these I've ever spent the money on. It was for a 30-30. Pretty neat stuff when you're a kid.
Hey, hand loaded versions can get up their in the 4k fps range. Unfortunately, this just means that the bullet will get to the wrong place quicker. Makes for some nice numbers on a chrono though---- provided that the sabot doesn't wipe the unit out.
I would love to see the flight path on one of these at 4k... the thing would have to tumble almost instantly, and would likely slice worse than some hack golfer in a hurricane.
Actually, if you run this combo through the bullet stability calculator at JBM, when shot through a 1:10 bbl which is pretty common in 06's it shows a stability factor of 2.02 which is great. The accuracy issue with these is the sabot and when it separates from the bullet. There's no way to assure that everything happens at the same time, every time. Figure that part out and they probably could be accurate enough but why bother with all the other options. Of course shooting a sabot/bullet combo does cut down on barrel wear from friction
