Bought a used Wolf ,though I have to agree with the seller that it wasn't shot much, does anybody have a pet load using about 100 gr of BH 209 ?

To be serious. Even someones pet load may not shoot as well in your gun. I'm sure you know that.

I usually pick a bullet that I want to shoot, and then try to get it to work with different powder loads. Did you want to shoot conicals, or sabots?

Yeah I know both ml and shotguns are all very finicky about which sabotted load they like, I think its due to how the rifling accepts each type of plastic sabot and diameter.  I'm leaning to a bullet in the 275-325 range.  Possibly some lehigh's .  I just trying to get a feel if the guys with these have a tighter bore 500-501 or a loose bore 502-504 that would make a big difference on the sabot I'd order possibly more so than the bullet.

The Wolf I just sold had a pretty tight bore. It shot the 250g T-EZ really good. That would be an excellent bullet for any deer. Hell, it would work fine for elk too which is what I was going to use it for.

Lots of guys love the Lehigh, but they all shoot them in Accura's, or other brands. No reason to think they won't work in a Wolf too.

To shoot a real bargain in a bullet. It's hard to beat the PT Gold. Great bullet for deer in 260gr or 300gr.

That ML will shoot an abundance of sabots pretty well. If sabots are tight in your bore, purchase the Harvester crushed ribbed sabots. If using a boattail design bullet, be sure to include Harvester's yellow boattail sabot.

You purchased a budget-friendly ML. I suppose you want to keep the bullet budget-friendly too? In that case, Harvester PT Golds and Hornady SSTs/XTPs have good track records for harvesting deer. Lastly, make sure your Wolf is wearing the proper breechplug for BH 209 and a hot primer like Federal 209A or CCI Mags.
