Sabots can indicate a whole realm of possible problems if you are having poor accuracy. Primarily they indicate poor barrel fit, excess friction in the barrel (poor quality barrel, pitting from neglect or excess fouling), sticking issues (sabot holds the bullet too long, disrupts flight).Pardon the ignorance but what are we supposed to be looking for? What do the sabots tell us?
Those look pretty good. For the most part the closer they look to being "reusable", the less problems you have with the gun (dont reuse them though ;D). Its also a good sign they are landing in pretty much the same spot.Dallin said he could tell a lot by looking at used sabots. Im curious what you all think of these. Im getting 1 1/2" groups when I do my part with a 1x scope at 100 yards. These sabots travelled approximately 20 yards downrange.
They are Harvester brand .50 cal
