Does anyone know how to tell the difference between a HPH-12 and a HPH-24 sabot? I had a bag of each in my shooting bag that I left open after shooting the other day and now there mixed up. I guess I could mic each one, but was hoping someone could tell me how to look at them and tell the difference.

From the MMP site:



The big difference between Black HPH12 and HPH24 is HPH24 is .002" smaller
in loaded diameter. Loaded diameter is a sabot with a bullet inserted.
With a .452 diameter bullet the HPH12 is .507-.508" diameter, the HPH24 is .505"-.506" diameter.
If you have a tight loading rifle you may want to choose the HPH24
or if you have a very tight rifle, consider our 3Petal-EZ.
However, if you shoot a Savage muzzleloader with smokeless powder the HPH24
may not fit tight enough to consistently ignite the smokeless powder.
The HPH12 is the stronger of the two sabots although both usually shoot very well with hot charges.
3Petal-EZ easiest loading MMP sabot.
Loaded diameter .502"-.504"


Hope this helps.

My OF eyes need all the help they can get. Go to Harbor Frieght and get a set of digital calipers for about $16.00.

I've had a set for a while now, and they measure to within a half-thou of my old $100.00 Mitsutoyos! Yes, I was amazed.
