Knight’s .52 DISC Extreme With Its Power Stem Breech Plug
Muzzleloader Hunting Gear- The new .52 DISC Extreme™ from Knight Rifles delivers big-bore knockdown power making it the ultimate big game muzzleloader. Elk, moose and bear hunters will appreciate the improved long-range performance this muzzleloader delivers.
The key to better ballistics on the .52 DISC Extreme is the new Power Stem™ breech plug technology that Knight has developed. The new breech plug has a longer stem that ignites the charge in its forward portion, instead of the rear, as with traditional ignition systems. This results in greater muzzle velocity and energy increases beyond 100 yards — in comparison to .50-caliber magnum loads — with less felt recoil.
The .52 DISC Extreme also uses the new XCoil™ recoil pad by HiViz Shooting Systems™, which absorbs felt recoil 33 percent more effectively than the market’s next best recoil pad. The XCoil pad uses a revolutionary composite to dampen recoil while providing a unique texture that resists slipping when shouldering and shooting the .52 DISC Extreme.
The new Knight .52 DISC Extreme features a stainless steel 26-inch Green Mountain precision-rifled barrel. It’s available in Realtree Hardwoods Green HD™ stock. In ballistic tests conducted by Knight, the .52 DISC Extreme produced an impressive 10 percent velocity and 20 percent energy increases at ranges over 100 yards. The tests used Knight’s Full Plastic Jacket™ to fire a 150-grain charge of Hodgdon’s Triple 7 loose powder instead of pellets. The powder charge ignites more efficiently than ever through the unique Power Stem
The optimal load is the 275 grain, .475 diameter Knight Red Hot bullet with 150 grains of 777 FFg loose powder. These loads outperformed .50 and .54 caliber loads because of the sabots developed specifically for the .52 DISC Extreme. The sabots have thinner petals that prevent gas leakage, and they release from the bullet immediately after leaving the muzzle. The sabots produced more accurate and consistent shots.
