lol no pete, that bore takes a .500" thor.

I guess you know my guns better than I do though.

I loaded & shot them in a brand new traditions st louis hawken with nice even pressure. Some resistance yes, but not the 30lb range.

I tried them in the same gun the OP is asking about. If they fit his gun like they do in mine he won't use them.

Better to get the regular Thors that fit the bore.

Tell you what. You drive up here with your Jeep. If you can get the Thor down my bore i'll give you my Jeep. If you can't i'll take your Jeep.

You better have your brother follow you up here so you have a ride home.


edit..........I'll supply the Thor.

To be serious for a minute. Those Thors need to start in the bore for them to work. meaning the bore has to be big enough to get started. Then the bore will bend it in for a fit.

If the bore is too small to even get them started they just hit the edge of the bore and bullet. No way to push them down then. You could size them down just a bit to get them started and then the bore will fit them.

I had two packs and tried every one of them. No way to get them started.

So, to the OP. They'll work if your bore is big enough to get them started.

Never tried NE. The 250/290gr Barnes T-EZ fit real tight. I need all my weight on the ramrod.

You never would have got a fits all Thor down my bore and would be watching your Jeep drive away.
