I would like to thank smokeeter for all his help and knowledge regarding this conversion. So I was using 40 cal.sst knurled to .402 with a blue harvesters sabot and reloader 7 as my charge the target was 200yrds at a range I was shooting for group the first shot was pulled by me it slipped in the rest the others it was held firm.Again thanks for help smokeeter 20180902_163216.jpg

    Yes it is a muzzle loader no mag all loading is done through the muzzle the barrel is designed for smokless powder and the load I use is safe in my gun and thanks for the compliment on the rig

    Real nice conversion, and you just begun working up a load and grouping like that, when they start going thru the same hole you'll think you missed the target...lol

    actually thats probally the best load i can use with that type of powder it is at it near max limit I dont like pushing the envolpe when I reload or do this , The sabot is the weak point in this toy I could go sabotless but I would have to full form or smooth form the projectiles and move up to a true 45 cal projectile , which is not out of the question I had to take a step back and look at what the longest shot I would take 300 yrds i would be comfortable with no kore than that do to my abilities
