The best bullet is one that shoots good, then you put it in the correct spot.

I was just out fine-tuning my 45 cal. I normally shoot Barnes, the SST/Shockwave type, or a Hornady Pistol bullet. Although they work, I thought the Barnes supplied sabot was a little tight in my 45. I changed them out with the light blue Harvester crush rib sabot and the fit is great.

Just saying, besides the bullet, mix and match if needed to get a good bore fit. I was glad to see the Barnes 195 grn and Hornady 200 grain bullets shoot to the same point of impact. I may use each this season.

I use hornady 300gr .429 [44cal] xtp pistol bullets with green harvester crush rib sabots and 120 gr blackhorn 209. can repeatedly shoot 1" or less groups @ 100yds. I zero the load @ 130yds. It makes for a true long range deer whacker. Check out hornadys ballistic calculator for stats. TC green sabots worked equally well also.
