The Following are the Loading Recommendations for The current Knigkt Rifles.

Link to the Knight Rifle Website

Loading Recommendations
We have an extensive line of bullets, (saboted and conicals ) which should cover any hunting needs or restrictions you would have, in any state. These bullets and sabots have been specifically engineered and hand picked to fit our rifles. Beginning your load testing with Knight bullets and sabots will save you time and money. We have a few of these bullets which typically provide better results in our rifles and our recommendations to begin sighting in are as follows:
.45 cal rifles:
45/175 Knight Red Hot Bullets by Barnes
.50 cal rifles:
50/250 Knight Red Hot Bullets by Barnes
50/300 Knight Red Hot Bullets by Barnes
50/285 Knight Red Hot Spitzer Boattail Bullets by Barnes
50/290 Knight Red Hot Polymer Tip SbT Bullets by Barnes
50/260 Knight Jacketed Bullets by Barnes
50/310 Knight Lead Bullets by Barnes
50/440 Knight Hydra-Con Conical Bullets by Parker Productions
.52 cal rifles:
52/375 Knight Red Hot Bullets by Barnes
52/530 Knight Hydra-Con Conical Bullets by Parker Productions
.54 cal rifles:
54/325 Knight Red Hot Bullets by Barnes
LOOSE POWDER:
The Knight Red Hot bullets are usually the most accurate in our rifles. Try varying powder charges from 90 up to the models maximum powder capacity in 10 grain increments, shooting three shot groups. [ Knight rifles have either a 120 or 150 grain max, depending on the model. All current 2006 models, have a 150 grain maximum powder charge. For other models, consult your owners manual or call Knight's Tech Support for info ] Return to the charge where the tightest groups were obtained and try varying the charge in smaller 5 grain increments, for a final fine tuning. If you've gone through this sequence with a particular bullet and still not achieved satisfactory results, it's time to try a different bullet. It may require a couple different Knight bullets to find the bullet that will work well for you, so buy them in small quantities to begin with. Once you've found the bullet of choice, then it's time to buy a year's supply.
PELLETED POWDER:
The Knight Red Hot bullets are usually the most accurate in our rifles. The pellets are made in 30 and 50 grain amounts. The pellets in two sizes, will allow you to mix and match anything from 80 - 150 grains, in 10 grain increments. Start your sighting in with 80 - 100 grains ( depending on the size of pellets you are using ). Shooting 3 shot groups, adjust your powder charges, working your way up to the maximum grain powder charge. [ Knight rifles have either a 120 or 150 grain max, depending on the model. All current 2006 models, have a 150 grain maximum powder charge.
