Never have, I have heard good things about the Harvester Sabots though.

Good choice! Some former T/C Shockwave and Hornady SST users are now using them. What a bargain those 50 pks are.

Awesome bullets and suuuuuper cheap. They will expand and put game down on the spot like this muley.

Re: Harvester Scorpion PT Gold 260gr

Think I'll give a try next year in VA. Been using the Shockwaves for years, mainly cause they're the only bullets that would group out of my rifle, and had terrible blood trails with them. Got a new rifle so I'll try a new bullet! From what I read and watched looks like I'll be sticking with Blackhorn 209 which is good cause that's my favorite powder!!

All depends on the sabot you use. What rifle are you shooting?

Blackhorn's best friend is a snug bullet. It never hurts to keep a little inventory on spare plastic sabots. Since the PT Golds come with the Harvester crushed rib sabot, order a pack of the Harvester regular in the same order. It likely wont increase shipping costs and sooner or later, you will use the 50-pk sabots.

I must have 3-4 different packages of sabots laying around, at all times. If I don't, then I chance episodes of trembles and hyperventilating.
