Default 357 mag SABOT round

picked up some 19 gr plastic gas checked "riot" bullets from hi tech ammo for 6$/100 on a whim. after visiting witht he guys over on the reloadbench forum i decided to experiment a bit. i ordered a bunch of 36 cal muzzleloading sabots from MMP.

MMP sabots and 19 gr "riot" bullets


bullets inserted in sabots


finished rounds


i loaded them in 38 special cases but the OAL is closer to the 357 mag round. they are loaded with red dot powder.

range report. one word.

WICKED

i dont have a chrono to know how fast they're moving but at 15 yards the bullet was buried 3/4" in a 6x6 post. recoil is so soft as to nearly be non-existant. at 100 yards they hit at point of aim. the bullet makes a really cool "whizz" sound as it flies for some reason. just by my own guess id say they're pushing 4000 FPS or better after sabot seperation. i think i have a new indoor anti-squirrel round.
