PowerBelt AeroLite AeroTip Bullets
Just purchased these bullets a few weeks ago and to my surprise they were extremely accurate and easy to load! Shot 1-1/2" groups at the range at 100yds through my CVA Optima with 85grains of Shockey's Gold FFF. Yesterday I hammered a whitetail doe at 125yds through one shoulder and the bullet passed through the ribs on the far side. She piled up in less than 10yds. Despite the mixed reviews, many hunters don't realize that not all powder/bullet combinations will be effective in EVERY rifle. I've been muzzle loading for nearly 35 years and trust me when I say "they can be just as finicky as a center fire rifle". So don't "bash" a product without explaining that it just may not work for your particular application.

powerbelt aerolite review
These have quickly become my favorite bullet for muzzleloading. With 150 grains of white hots and the 300 grain aerolite, my cva acura shoots 1 inch 3 shot groups at 100 yards without swabbing. So far i have shot 2 deer with that load. One was a high shoulder shot and was drt. The other was a running shot that struck the deer way to far back but the kinetic energy transfer spun it around 180 degrees. Due to the accuracy of this combo i made a very easy follow up head shot because the head was the only part i could see. I realise in that circumstance, any bullet would have finished it off but the first rounds massive energy transfer meant it didnt go anywhere even with poor shot placement. So far i have to rate these bullets a solid 5/5

I own a T/C Impact and I use the 250 grain. It shoots extremely accurate and was well worth the money. A friend recommended these and they are the only bullets I will shoot.
Do yourself a favor don't look any further, buy these.

I used these bullets for the first time this year and they have performed very well. I sighted my gun in at 100 yds and killed two deer with them. They hit hard and had big exit wounds. One deer died instantly and the other only made it about 100 ft. I will definitely use these bullets again next year and would recommend you try them out for yourself.
