Hornady FPB Bullets
Great Big Game bullet for the muzzleloader
I'm a big fan of Hornady bullets as a whole, but i found that saboted bullets were fairly inconsistent in my gun. I think the sabots were burning out trying to ride the rifling. I started shooting these with that in mind, and I'm glad I did. They simply devastate deer. I had the good fortune to hunt bison with black powder two years ago, and anchored a great bull. One shot with a 350 grain FPB and 100 grains of Triple 7 dropped him where he stood. I'm shocked at the reviews of others, but I can assure you, no other bullet will be put downrange from my muzzleloader. My experience showed me they'll work for anything that walks in North America.

Only bullet i'll use
Started useing these last year,shot a doe 60 yds,complete pass thru,with an awesome blood trail. Took an 8pt and 12pt wtih it this year,all had good blood trails and has complete pass thrus.They load super easy in my CVA kodiak and you don't have to swab between shots either,I can group 5 shots at 100yds off of a bench and get 1.5 in groups all day long..Best bullet i've used,and its the only bullet that i'll use from now on..I love it. I attached a picture of the 8pt,thats what it does at 40yds..

FPB-Best on the market
I have shot all kinds through my TC and have not found a better bullet. It is accurate (1.5" @ 100 yrds)and did a number on my bull elk this year.The bullet retained approx 85% of its weight.I shot the bull at about 150 yards and it only went 25 feet and dropped there.Skinning the elk I retrieved the bullet just under the hide on the far side.Beats the powerbelts hands down!!

I highly recommend this bullet for game up to elk. Two have fallen to this bullet so far for me and I will be using them again this fall on an elk hunt. One side note: Some guns have bores too small and it takes too much force to load. If you have a real tight bore, they might not be the best choice for you, but if they fit your gun, they will probably shoot well. Second point: the rear skirt is larger than bore and has to be sized to your bore with a small bullet starter. Place the bullet at the top of the barrel and give your bullet starter a "whack" to get it started. Then it should load fairly easy.
