Default Saboted Lead Bullets

Still looking at bullets for my Knight 50 cal Wolverine. That said, has anyone had experience with any of the saboted lead bullets out of muzzleloaders on deer? I am shooting 100 gr of pyrodex pellets.

NoExcuses Bullets now sells a variety of somewhat affordable lead bullets in sabots. The speed of 2 Pyro pellets should be pretty close but you can do so much better dialing in a load by using loose powder. Around $33/50 with sabots. Weights from 250-400gr are available.

Just like any bullet they can surely work. You just need to shoot them within a velocity range that they perform well and retain adequate energy for a ethical kill.

A friend deer hunts with the TC Cheap Shot lead bullets and sabots. Bought two packages for him this morning on sale at Wal Mart . Cost was $6.00 for a package of 20.

We are not what you may call experts but we use the TC Cheap shots also . By we I mean 5 of us and have taken many deer with them in the last few years ! The bullets are used in 50 cal Wolf inlines and Lyman Deer stalker flintlocks .
