New Range Report Thompson center impact
I had a chance to see how the gun loads and shoots.
I was just going sight in the fiber optic that came with the gun.
I did clean the bore and gun out if box.
I had some BH209
Thompson center 250 gr. Shockwave both yellow and blue tips.
The sabot are the T/C yellow .
I also had some Hornady 240 xtp mag. With mmp# 24 black sabot.
80 gr. BH at 25 yards off hands dead center a little high.
Back to 100 yards Iron sights 90 gr. 209 with both 250 gr. Bullet.
Yellow and Blue bonded nice 3" group 4 shots
The Hornady will not go down the bore .
The shockwave first round no problem.
The next round stared with a little more muscle on the Ramrod but still o.k. if you needed a follow up shot
Thompson center bore is tight.
The shockwave measure around .505 bullet in sabot.
Hornady runs .530 45 xtp .452 then placed in the black sabot.
Some day try harvester black crush rib for Hornady bullet
