    A 150 grain 0.308 Accubond is just about 1.21 OAL which is just on the edge for me with twist.

    The 150 grain SMK's look to be shorter ( from a website picture they look about 1.18+-), does anyone know what their length actually is?

    Thanks,

    edge.

    I'd be interested to hear how they shoot, i tryed some .30/.224 sabots a while back and had trouble getting groups constistantly under 4" at 50y.

    Savage project rifle. Started life as an'06, and is now a .458 muzzleloader.

    Top 3 group are 150 grain bullet,
    Bottom 2 are 165 grain. Both groups are using 70 grains N120 and the sabots weigh 42 grains. ( 100 yards)

    Muzzle flash is much less with the 165 (207 gr. total weight) verses the 150 grain bullet so I suspect that I need a faster powder.

    I have not chronographed them, but suspect 2900-3000 fps.

    A day late and a dollar short, BUT, how about the 155 grain A-Max length?

    Sorry,

    edge.
