PowerBelt® HollowPoint Copper-Plated or Lead Bullets
These performed well. We had a chance to fire them through a variety of black powder weapons and the results were always the same. I used to reload my own ammo for centerfire handguns and these projectiles seem a bit pricey to me.

Big BANG for the BUCK
I began my muzzleloading career with a sidelock, like most. The first projectiles I used were Hornady "Buffalo Bullets". When I got my first inline I dabbled with the TC Sabots. Finally, I landed on the Powerbelts. I've never looked back. These are the most accurate, hardest hitting, and most consistent projectiles I've ever used. I use them primarily for Whitetails in Northern Ohio. The entrance holes are typically not large but, the exit holes are tremendous. I've shot deer that have bleed out before they could get 25 yards away. I recommend them to all of my friends and, most of them have converted. I'm not partial to any weights nor, am I partial to hollow points or aerotips. You really can't go wrong. I do use pyrodex pellets and my gun utilizes 209 primers. I currently use the CVA Optima. If you have not hunted with these projectiles, try them. You'll not be disappointed.

They Work For Me
I have been using these for a few years now and have found all the deer I shot. None of the deer had dropped right there but they have not gone too far. I will admit this bullet doesn't make a big entrance or exit hole, which means not great blood trails.Overall, I don't plan on changing my bullet choice anytime soon!

I have shot 2 deer so far the 348 grain .50 caliber version. Both deer were shot broadside through the vitals (chest cavity). Both deer dropped in their tracks. The first deer died instantly, the second deer died within 15 seconds. Penetration and knockdown power is exceptional compared to other muzzleloader projectiles I have used. I will never go back to sabots. Very quick and humane kill - that's tops in my book. With the two deer I have taken with these no tracking was required since they both dropped where they stood - that's great when darkness is only a few minutes away. Accuracy is fine.

Generally speaking, if your gun will safely load say, 100 grains of black powder, you can safely load 115 grains of Pyrodex powder. Check with the manufacturer to find the max. loads for your piece before you start shooting. A standard hunting load for deer should be at least 80 to 90 grains of powder, some guns can accept up to 150 grains.
