Jerry Lane tested the 225 grain Pittman AccuMax .402's in sabots today. The gun has a 1 in 20" twist Krieger Barrel. The load was 60gr IMR4198, Harvester Light Blue Sabot with the Pittman AccuMax .402' 225 grain. The first group pictured was 3 shots one after another with no cooling time between shots. Group 2 is a three shot group with 15 minutes between shots. This load is safe in the test gun, may not be, nor recommended for your gun.
We were shooting 3 guns and just totally failed to chrono on the other bench. Velocity is estimated at 2750 to 2800 fps. This opens up a whole new world to saboted 45 hunters/shooters...A true game changer...Kudos Kyle
I kinda doubt its going over 2700fps with 60gr of 4198. I think that would be faster than what ive see with a 200gr bullet. If it wasnt so dirty, Reloder7 is a good choice. Slightly slower than 4198 and 63gr does clock around 2700fps+ with a 200gr bullet. It seems really easy on sabots too.
