45cal offers several advantages over the 50cal. The 45cal allows the 200gr 40cal class bullet to be shot with sabots out to approximately 300 yards with excellent accuracy and little recoil. If further range is desired, the 45cal may be used sabotless and even more velocity and range achieved when removing the sabot from the system. Additionally, removing the sabot reduces the heat factor that often degrades factory on warmer range days.
A quality aftermarket 50cal barrel can still provide excellent results, and may be required by law for some western state hunts. However, when combined with a sizing die, there’s nothing a 45cal cannot do better than a 50cal.
Typical loads with sabots and the 195GR Barnes Expander or 200GR Hornady SST run around 2700 FPS (both 40cal bullets). If the sabot is removed, typical velocity ranges from 2600-3000 FPS depending on charge, barrel length, and bullet weight. Typical bullet weights range from 250gr to 327gr.
An ASG051 (45cal 0.060″ thick) veggie wad does help yield a better seal and can help with ignitionl consistency. The majority of our customers use them, but a handful of customers do report better accuracy without them. The ASG Gen2 LRMP system is efficient enough that a wad is not required.

We no longer support 10ML2/700ML barrel swaps. The technology is obsolete compared to the Arrowhead Gen2 System (which isn’t compatible with the 10ML2 or 700ML). We still carry the parts as legacy support or for customers/gunsmiths that know what they need and how to do it, but we will not provide any guidance or recommendations anymore. We know this may not be a popular decision for some customers. However, we do not have the time to give adequate support, and if we can’t do something well, we’re not going to do it. If you’re looking for something with similar performance that utilizes our Gen2 ignition system, check out our replacement encore barrels.
