I haven't tried it yet since it broke, but plan to keep it on and use it first, then possibly try another scope.

I would really be surprised if they did. I believe Knight's only have a one year warranty.

I have been lucky enough to get a replacement ramrod guide for my LK and a couple metal capper/decappers from their booth at the Iowa Deer Classic, all cheap parts, but they at least did that for me.

Now a $185 thumbhole stock.......thats a whole different story there. I doubt they would.



Most sabots go down the barrel pretty tough, even after being cleaned. With your palm on the end of the ramrod it's not very easy. That sound normal? I thought the Knight barrels were supposed to be a hair on the loose side.

Should i be looking at some different thicknesses of sabots for better accuracy?

I would suggest that it should take 35-40 lbs of pressure to push the sabot down. So it should start wtih thumb pressure then two hands on the rod pushing down.

Normally the tighter sabots shoot very accurately but if they load with difficulty it is not worth it.

I am still leaning to the scope and bases and/or the barrel getting caught in the stock in different places.

Default Powder and load

More not usually better. 50 cal 24, 28 in barrel 80- 90, 95 plenty.
use: bore dia radius sqd x 3.1416 x barrel length x 15.72.
This will give you best average effecient powder load. Tweak from there by 5% increments but not over 15% of average. Always worked for me along with proper projectile fit.

NEVER MIND SEE THREAD IS 8 YRS OLD, SHOULD OF LOOKED BEFORE POSTING


You can order a thumbhole Bighorn stock and it will fit the LK93 I just put one on my .36 LK93 a couple months ago, fit was perfect.

As for the LK, my 54cal had a slightly larger bore than my DISC based 54cal.



I would take a guess at trying a tighter fitting sabot and your current bullets. Its the least expensive starting point. You could also try some of the cheaper Rem 300gr 458s in a Harvester Crushib for .452 bullets. That combo usually works well in larger bores.

BTW Knight still offers the 250gr RedHot, its the same bullet as a Barnes Expander MZ but it may use a different sabot.

These come with the EZ load 3P sabot so you may need to swap them or buy the Barnes branded version.
