I want to thank those who have allready posted very usefull replys to "scopes" and "bullet weights" and please keep the info comming. I am obsorbing information like a sponge. In the mean time I have another elamentry question reguarding bullet style. The instructional video that came with my Omega was not very complementary about "bore size bullets". But they ( Thompson Center) seem to be quite biased toward their own brand (shockwave)of saboted bullets. Powerbelt's big advertizing claims are that they are easier to load, do not leave as much plastic residue in the rifelings and have a better sectional density than sabots. Hodgdon's web site shows that the sabots have a slight edge in ballistics with approximately 100 fps more muzzel velocity with the same bullet weight and powder charge compared to Powerbelt bullets. So what is your real field experience and opinions?
