I been hunting with my 1:20 Knight disc . i really like the fast twist . I have been shooting a bullet that seems to have great potential for long range. But at the same time I've had a hankering to get my Sidelock out and use it.
At first i figured that I will just wait til Muzzleloader season or the refuge hunt, that's when I usually use it . well this year i didn't draw a refuge tag, so that means december when muzzy season starts. Then I had a recollection of a gun that just might let me do both.( shoot a sidelock and the current bullet I'm using)
A few years ago Doc made me a English Sporting rifle
It has a Douglas barrel with a 1:20 twist, and a flip up ladder sight good to 700 yards.
I bet ,since it's the same twist as the Disc, that it will shoot the saboted 230 gr bullet. The big factor is the sabot fit. I guess the only way to know would be to try it. If it shoots that combination then I could satisfy my hankering to shoot the sidelock while still using the same bullet for hunting.
I am going bow hunting for a few days but maybe next week I can experiment and see.
