These are new sabots for the 50.cal muzzleloader.
They require no plastic wad.
The powder go's right under the bullet.

I seen um @ Wal-Mart.
Has anyone try'ed them out?

I was plain on it before the season comes along.
I got my T/C Omega 50cal. sighted in for 348 grain powerbellets.
The Hornady should be no different on point of impact.

Dennis, I cheeked out the ballistic scale on both & the both cheek out to be very closely the same.
I was woundering when someone would say something about it.

I shot the Hornady 350 grain bullets.I started out with 150 grains of powder the group was around 12 inches. Then I dropped down to 120 grains and groups came down to around 6 inches. After that it got too hard to load them.The first one I loaded went in easy and smooth,the second one got tough,every shot after got worse.I am not going to clean my gun after every shot, so I will stay with the 250 grain shock wave.They load the same on the 15th shot as they did the first load .Plus the groups are less than 2 inches at 100 yards.

Thanks ibokie for the heads up on the new bullets by Hornady.
Guess,I will stick to powerbelt aerotips with sub moa's @ 100 yards.
I use 100 grains of pyrodex.Or 150 grains for shoots' over 100 yards still group under 1/2" @ 200 yards.
I got a T/C 50 Cal Omega with the thumbhole stock.

I love it ...I just need to get a kill on it now.

You are welcome Gauge.I thought it would be good to not have plastic in the barrel. I probably could have gotten better groups with different powder charge, but I did not like the how hard they were to load after the first shot. Are you shooting with a SS barrel or blued?I have a T/C Omega with a SS barrel and synthetic stock.The best groups I have gotten with mine are around 1 1/2 inch at 100 yards.It has drawn blood 3 times so I can not complain.

ibokie~I have a blued barrel.
I use 2-3 50 grain 50 caliber pellets of pyrodex [1] 348grain power belt aerotip bullet. [1] 209 Remington kleenbore primer.
I can achieve the same sub moas with the 250 grain t/c shock waves as well.Both the yellow & blue tip shock waves.

It's my first muzzleloader I've owned.
I was just shooting my buddys tradition tracker every year.
The T/C Omega Shoots' better then I imagined it too.

The power belts load the easiest of all used & mentioned.
