    Default What is the SML preferred Load These Days

    Having been out of touch with SML for some years and seeing little posting about SML activity Iím curious as to what favorite SML loads are being used.
    My current load is 250SST/250FTX with Harvester sabot shot at around 2300fps in my 10ML-II 50.
    I do knurl my bullets for a specific bore fit. Mentioning powder of choice is an option.
    This request is not limited to 50cal and would enjoy seeing the 45cal included.

    I've been shooting the PR Bullet Extreme Elite in 260 grain for a number of years. It's a .40 cal bullet, and I just use the sabot that it comes packaged with. Happy with the results on paper and on game.

    I'm just a deer hunter. This load gives me superb consistent groups after one fouling shot.

    I wonít share the load data on the general forum but I use the following powders with good success in custom 45cal and some powders in standard 50 cal savage.

    IMR 4198 for hunting loads using 300-350 grain projectiles
    N110 for puff loads and duplex charges
    4759 for cast and duplex
    H322 for higher velocity rounds
    Imr3031 for extreme speed 300 grain projectiles loads
    5744 for cast projectile plinking

    Boy you have used an array of different powders for 50 and 45Cal. There’s definitely a lot of knowledge and experience found here. What peak’s my curiosity, if you don’t mind me asking, how do you keep track of all your loads and results?
    Currently I’m trying to digitize load info for easier reference and reduce paperwork clutter.
