Default 45 cal omega

after messing around with the GPR I decided to get out the Omega and see how it did with a standard hunting load.
I chose to go with a 110 gr Blackhorn and a 260 gr Dead Center sabot. I has to ditch the tan sabot and switch to a blue crush rib as the tan was to tight.
The gun has a Lyman peep sight in the rear which really restricts my range and a Phoenix precision front sight . I stayed at 300 yards for the longest shots.

Gun: Omega 45 cal Douglas 1:18 bull barrel
110 gr Blackhorn
260 gr Dead Center sabot
Federal 209 primer
I don't know how to do videos so this is just raw footage. It isn't edited to cut out the long delay between turning on the camera and firing

Nice. For most of my hunting anymore I like the .45. Movies make the .50 more popular. But the .45 will handle just about anything. Now I do like playing with my .58 with PRB. And I can't wait to put the smack down on a deer with one.
