Tried but web site said it is Out of stock. Heck of a buy if you got one for that price.

Unfortunately, Many of the guns are listed as out of stock. They have some .52 extremes left at 239.99 but the .52 is not the direction I am going. Thanks for the heads up on the site though.

Looks like they got some 50cal LRHs left in stock at a fairly reasonable price. Thats a steal on the Extreme 52cal but i dont need another 52. Sabot selection is a bit limited but the ones available get the job done just fine. Harvester might be offering a new 52x452 sabot for them this year. Knight sells them loose for about $10 for 50. Add a 458 bullet from 220-405gr and you have a gun that will kill nearly any big game humanely. 458 bullet selection is very good IMO and a good match for ML velocities.

I hit the "ad to cart" on that laminate Extreme faster than lightning. Too bad they are sold out. The stock and bolt alone are worth that much.

Congrats, i think you will really like the 52cal if you are looking for upper end 45/70 type performance. The 52x475s are interesting but bullet selection isn't as good. The .475 325gr XTPs ive shot are some thumpers though and Speer offers a couple .475 options too.

The slightly faster twist is the main reason i wanted one and the potential for exceeding 3000FPE within recommended load data. Knights recommended .475-375gr is a expensive beast but you can get close to that level with a Speer .458-350gr SP bullet for a fraction of the cost. The 52cal Knight sabots are tough and should handle just about anything you can tolerate shooting. The recoil pad on the 52cal Extremes are a bit nicer too IIRC.

I wish they would have focused more on a high end 54x50 DISC option with a faster twist but the 52cal was intended for long range performance so my 458-300gr SOCOMs at about 2000fps will have to do for now.
