    Took my Traditions Strikerfire out today with what I called a plinking load and surprised the heck out of me, its not a plinking load, its a friggin accurate as sin hunting/target load!

    90gr Blackhorn209
    260gr Harvester PT Gold
    Harvester RED Crush Rib sabots
    CCI 209 Magnum primers
    100 yards

    3 shots upper left with above load. The 2 closer to the bulls eye was with I think were MMP sabots, they have 4 petals.

    Switching over to the Black crush rib sabot,it was waaaaay wrong for this rifles .502" bore. My range rods weight almost completely seated the bullet that's how loose they fit. Accuracy wasn't good either.

    You can see above I took another shot AFTER i fired the 3 with the black crush rib, heres the close up with the red sabot.

    I really am starting to appreciate that 2 stage trigger! Just put all your focus on the target, pull to take up creep and gently squeeeeeze the trigger and 26oz later BANG!
