Default Range Report BH209 LRH

Shot another can yesterday. I love this stuff 60 some shots no swabbing!!! I shot just about everything from shockwave, xtp,knight pbt, barnes tmz, dead center, and scorpion gold pt. I wanted to pick a combo for hunting this year. I have it narrowed down to the Knight pbt 290g, tmz 290,( same bullet just different sabot)or the scorpion gold pt 300g. I noticed that the Knight pbt slide down the gun very easy, and as i fired more shots, there was just a little more resistance loading, and the groups got a little tighter the more i shot. It was just the opposite with 290g tmz. Here a few pics from some of my better groups.

Looks like your looking for Accuracy at 200. Based on my experience with the Savage I would recommend you try the following:

Barnes Origonals 300g
Crushed Rib Sabot
Federal or Win Primer

TC SW 300g
supplied sabot
Federal or Win Primer.

275g Parker Ballistic Extreme
Red Crushed Rib sabot
Federal or Win Primer

I tried all the following bullets in my Savage:
Barnes TMZ 290 (your Knight bullet)
Harvester PT Gold 300g
Parker BC 275g
Bonded SW 300g
Knight Ultimate Slam 300g
Hornady SST
all with 5744, which is about the same MV that you will be shooting with the BH. My results are published here:

http://www.the-gleasons.com/this_is_my_savage_10_ml_page.htm

in my quest to find an accurate, non-fragmenting, deep penetrating, shoot thru bullet. My ranking of bullets above for fragmenting, highest to lowest:
Knight Ultimate Slam
Barnes TMZ
BSW
Hornady SST
SW non bonded
PBE
PT Gold

Hope that is helpful to you.
Kindest regards,
Chap
