This one is new to me, a Woodman Arms Patriot. .45 caliber. One sweet rifle. Designed for the BH209 powder and T7 granular products, it’s also rated for, and set up for, smokeless powder. 24″ McGowen barrel, 1:18: twist rate. Fully Nitrided. Seen here with a 4X12X40 scope. Trigger is a nice, crisp 3 pounds with zero creep.
Currently it is being fed a 56 grain load of IMR 4198 powder with a blue sabot and 200 grain .40 cal XTP bullet and grabbing right around 2200 fps. If loaded close to max at 62 grains of said powder the velocity would be just over 2400 fps, but where I hunt I won’t need those kinds of numbers.
I’ll get accustomed to the gun using the 200 grain XTPs but will likely be shooting a 225 grain .40 cal Star Tipped bullet made by Fury pushed with around a 60 grain charge of mentioned powder.
It’ll handle three other smokeless powders as well so I’ll be playing with those as the year runs on, but I am excited to say the least about getting this animal.
