250gr saber tooth
tops 2, 80gr RS, 25 yards.

Middle, 80gr RS 50yards

bottom,80gr RS 100yards, expanded to the size of a dime.

Notice that all of the gas seals stayed attached to the bullet. Even the 100 yard bullet! Bad design and more than likely the reason why some people do not get accuracy from them.

70gr RS would be best if you were hunting an area and knew your shots would be in the up close and personal range on out to 75ish yards.

RE: 250gr saber tooth
Important finding that the sabots stay on. They look pancaked out to me on some of them, which is not good in my opinion. Why were U shooting them? Just wondering? Chap

RE: 250gr saber tooth
Had to resight in my brothers CVA Hawken "Yep just like yours corey!! lol" and thats all i had for his rifle. They load pretty hard but it was still doable and they got us on sight. Should be close to the same impact area when he goes back to the Powerbelt.

RE: 250gr saber tooth
that was with the x-150:D

this cva hawken has a much tighter bore and does not need that.

RE: 250gr saber tooth
The Saber Tooth Conicals I was shooting the other day all shed their bases perfect actually. I am kind of surprised to see that they held onto them that way. There was no glue or anything on them was there?

RE: 250gr saber tooth
no glue or anything. I was thinking about taking a movie of the shooting tomorrow and see if my brother has a program to slow the speed down so we all could see.

Thats why most of the bases are all torn up. from the sand and being crimped by the lead when they mushroomed.
