    I just broke my Knight Bighorn out to get ready for the weekend. I shoot Hornady 45 XTPs sabots with 150gr 777.2" group @ 100, so I'm ok with that. I just can't remember where the ballistics for that charge was. Anybody know? Thanks in advance Skip

    Download this FREE software ballistics program: FREE Point Blank Ballistics Software « Daily Bulletin

    You'll need to determine what the velocity is from your specific rifle and load, then just get the BC for the XTP and you'll be all set. Its a good FREE software program with many people that use it. Fun to look at the "what if's".

    However, I wouldn't depend entirely on the ballistics reports and would actully shoot to the farthest distance you would intend to shoot while hunting. You should verify your POI at that given range, then compare it to the results that the software program gave you.
