Default new bullets

last year i got big into muzzy hunting and now i have a problem. my omega shoots a 250 shockwave with the black sabot wonderfully but i nearly have to hit them with a mallet to get them down the tube ( another small bore tc) i want an easier loading bullet sabot combo that will still punch small groups and kill those country club golf course deer

mabey a better expanding bullet too

It is hard to say... use this bullet because I might suggest it and it might shoot terrible out of your rifle.

What you might want to do is try some of the different bullets out there that fit your needs. You want expansion, so look at Speer Gold Dot HP, Hornady XTP's , Barnes MZ Expanders, Nosler Partition, Parker Extremes, ... one of these should shoot well and load easier. There are reports of T/C rifles that have a tight barrel.

If you were to use crush rib sabot with them same bullet, you could probably load them with a just right push.

I've found that the black ones are the best shooting ones in all my rifles, they are a pain in the ain' to load but they fly straight and tight and are consistant...I also wish they would load easier but I'll not worry about that..a straight first shot and I don't need to worry about reloading anyway...
