Default 300 Gr deep curls

My order of 300 gr deep curls came in today. i ordered the harvester long black sabots also. after looking at the sabots closely they don't appear to be crushed rib. now i am wondering if i can even get them down my Triumphs barrel. the .250 deep curls with the short CR sabot go down perfect.any of you using the 300 gr D C even use the long black sabots?

heck i even got a 100 of the 295's for my 54 sidelock LOL. I cant wait to try those out. Never shot a 54 with a conical before so that will be fun for certain.

I think i may have some of the 300 DC's as well.

In my Triumph, i use only crush rib sabot. The black with 300g Deep Curl, and the green with 270g Deep Curl. The smooth Harvester are too tight to suit me, for the Triumph.

Didn't realize there are 2 length of crush rib. You can use them smooth sabot in a CVA or somethin' else.

sorry for the confusion. i thought the long blacks were CR, as it turns out they are not.your correct they do not have a LB CR, it is a smoothie.i can use them in the lil ladies Knight i am sure. don't own any CVA's.i will use the C R sabots i have on hand..

Which ever sabot you use with the 250's will work just fine with the 300's. I use the HPH-24 in my Triumph but i also ran JB's through the bore. When i first got the rifle I could not even get the CR's down the bore....

I use the crushed ribs now and they load perfect with the .250 gr DC's.i just made a mistake ordering the long blacks, i didn't notice they were not CR sabots and was paying more attention to the fact they were for 300 gr bullets lol..i will order some more C R sabots and use the Lb's in the knight wolverine along with the 300 gr Dc's. as always Sabotloader.. thanks for the input..
