New rifle and shooting to get used to it and gaining confidence, which I why I continue with the SST. My past experience with SST or Shockwave is very negative on game, however that may not be the same for others. I haven't taken an animal with one since they first hit the market and I had the negative experiences.
I've tried a couple different bullets with the rifle, the 300gr BE's and 300gr Scorpion PT Gold. However not with the new Timney. I have 100 PTG's and different sample sabots I'll be trying shortly. I also have some 275gr BE that I'll try. My bullet of CHOICE for hunting however, is Barnes. I'll shoot what I have until I can get my hands on the 290gr Barnes flat base, T-EZ bullets. I'll throw out the supplied sabots and use the H5045 LB. I was told by Randy that the Ultimate shoots them very well using that sabot. I know how a Barnes bullet performs from experience. But..... this new adventure and a new bullet may be in order.
