Default Knight Disc (original) with Nikon Pro Staff scope

I was going through projectiles last night and found some that were sent to me. They were 300 grain Precision Rifle Extremes. They are an all lead bullet with sabot and a jag for loading.

I decided to use the Knight Disc Rifle to test them. I had no idea how much powder to try with them.





I decided 100 grains would be a good load for all the testing. I walked the target back as far as I could and placed it. The range finder said 112 yards. This is a lot further then I normally shoot, but the rifle is sighted in for 100 yards so this should be a good test for it, and especially me.

The Precision Rifle bullets were not grouping like I thought they would. I shot off five of them and had one that really took off. I was kind of surprised by the flier as I thought every thing was fine until I checked the target with the spotting scope.

I then decided to shoot some Shockwaves. These are the .40 caliber 200 grain version. And again, I was not shocked they were hitting high, since the rifle is sighted in with 250 grain bullets. Then again, I had a little flier. This was kind of upsetting.

I then gave the scope three clicks down, and this time loaded the .10mm 200 grain Hornady HP/XTP in the blue MMP sabots. I was kind of pleased with the three shots.

I decided the target was getting crowed and wanted to change it. So I went and got a different circle. This time it was a smaller one then usual. I also found a furniture polish can that refused to give me the liquid, but was still under pressure. So I hauled that outside also as well.





Even with the slight scope adjustment, the first two were on the top of the bull, so I aimed just a little on the bottom of the bulls eye and all was going good, until #6 came along. I just had to push the issue.

As for the can, I hit that with one of them 200 grain XTP's and it gave up all its liquid real fast. Kind of a mess actually. But the Disc shoots real good with these light bullets.

I have had a few of the Knight original disc rifles and they all shot Precision deadcenters real well. Looks like it is still winter up your way!

Good shooting at over 100 yards.
What?
No Powerbelts?
I see the XTP's seemed to shoot very well for you.
I have a bunch of the 10mm XTP's I need to get sabots for so I can try them.
I really like the Hornady XTP. It groups very well and I've dropped a couple of deer in their tracks with them too.
By the way, are you a little shot on paper or just trying to save a tree? You can get all the targets of all different types that you want for free at any one of a number of sites.
my targets.com
targetz.com
winchester.co
For just a few.
Or just enter, free targets, into your search engine and pick one.
By the way, nice looking rifle.
