Re: Slow Twist Sabot Shooting
When the patched roundball was mandated in PA, I acquired rifles (sons hunt too) to shoot the roundball. ( I even sold a .45 TC Hawken that grouped 240 gr maxi-balls great) The roundball has always worked on deer which were properly hit. But, the modern projectiles are simpler to use, based on my experience with inlines. Besides, I like to shoot and experiment.
I am skeptical of the effectiveness of 180 gr pistol bullets being fired at well above their designed velocity range. One review I read claimed poor penetration on deer when fired from a .44 mag rifle.
