I purchased some Hornady XTP 45cal 250GR HP\XTP bullets yesterday with some TC Super Glide sabots for 50cal guns using .452" bullets. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using this bullet for hunting and what your comments might be for using this cambination for deer hunting here in Iowa. I am shooting Triple 7 powder and have a good stock pile of CCI 209 primers. Last year I was using the Hornady SST low drag 50cal 250GR bullets and liked them a lot. They dropped my deer right away with a good double lung shot but they are terribly expensive to shoot at the range or just getting ready for the next season. I usually loaded 120GR of powder and got good results but am not sure what would be a good powder load behind my new 45 cal XTP bullets with sabots for a 50 cal rifle. I am shooting a Knight Vision 50 for a rifle. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
