Default Lead Sabots for the Knight Long Range Hunter?

Hi all,
I’ve shot a CVA for years and then went to a Winchester X-150 and now upgraded even more to the Knight “LRH”.
In the previous two ML’s I was shooting the 348gr lead Powerbelt’s with consistent results in both guns.
The PB’s don’t shoot worth a crap in the LRH! [:'(]
I’ve also had zero success with Precision Rifle’s “Dead Center” polymer tipped lead crap-bullets in all three of the ML’s.

I’ve always used the Pyrodex pellets and like the way they handle, 100gr in the CVA and 150gr in the Winchester.
And so far 100gr in the LRH so my preference on powders won’t soon change…

The State of Washington demands that all ML’s shoot “Non-jacketed lead projectiles” and use #11 or Musket caps for ignition. [:@]
Other than Knights own brand of lead sabots I haven’t found many others.

Has anyone had successful experience with non-jacketed sabots and possibly recommend some good ones for hunting both Deer and Elk?

For deer, you might try the TC Cheap Shots. A guy in my hunting club gets real good results (accuracy & effectiveness on deer) with them out of his Knight DISC.

For elk, I'd try cast Lee .458 405 grain bullets in an MMP orange sabot. It may (or may not) shoot well for you.

My son-in-law lives in Kennewick - I have set him up with 460 grain Bull Shop conicals. They are a slip fit conical and load just like a sabot. He is shooting them from a Remington 700ml and thay should realy shoot well from a LRH. I use themhere in Idaho during our ML season and I shoot them from a GM-LRH-SS barrel AWESOME.... and they certainly are one bullet for both animals.

If you would like some additional information on them let me know...
