Another Trip to the Rock Pit with a new Brass bullet
« on: June 03, 2023, 02:33:46 PM »
Thursday 6-1, I made an escape from Moscow and drove out to the Rock Pit to do same shooting. It is great recreation!!!

The goal was to shoot the new brass bullet that Dave put up on the SSK web site.

.458 CALIBER, 265GR, FRACTURING HUNTING MUZZLELOADER BULLET WITH HARVESTER CRUSH RIB SABOT FOR 50 CAL



Right now, it is the only bullet listed on the SSK web site. As I understand it the bulle was built for the new Mongrel rifle that SSK is building and selling.  It was my understanding that the was a problem with the current bullet loading/shooting from the Mongrel so the folks at SSK decided to put it in a 50 Cal Crush Rib sabot and put it out on in the market.

I had shot it with a Knight U-Lite several months ago but the day was right and I needed to do something I enjoyed doing.

If you look at the specification for the bullet - it really could be a very good animal getter.  The Controlled Fracturing concept has proven to have excellent Terminal Performance on game.  And the specifications indicate the CF function will work done to 750 fps which could extend the down range functioning of CF to allow longer shots from a normal muzzleloading rifle.

The picture below shows the results of my short trip to the Rock Pit.



Right now I believe Dave has created another winner!!!

Great info and pics. As usual!

I'm wondering, what makes these different than Lehigh, Knight Bloodlines?
Same bulllet?

Basically the same bullet. I believe Knight owns the name Bloodline.
