PowerBelt® Platinum Bullets
Loads faster. Shoots cleaner. Hits harder!
PowerBelt Bullets are the most advanced muzzleloading projectiles ever developed, with all of the benefits of saboted bullets, but none of the problems. The patented, slightly over bore, snap-on base creates a perfect gas seal, providing consistent pressures and superior accuracy. Plus, PowerBelt Bullets are easy to load because they are one-thousandth of an inch under bore.
More aggressive taper from center to tip increases aerodynamic performance and accuracy. Tighter-fitting gas check delivers higher and more consistent pressures for better velocity. Plated with a proprietary process that makes them harder than copper, reducing barrel resistance. 15 pack.

Bullet is accurate but does not hold together. I shot 2 small does this year. First one, it got dark on me so had to go back in the morning and the dogs had gotten to her. The second I recovered that day but upon cleaning found nothing but small fragments. It looked like she was shot point blank with squirrel shot. I am not shooting anything hot. 85gr of BH209. First deer was maybe 140 yards and second was 40. If all you want to do is shoot paper then this bullet is ok but expensive. If you want to hunt. Find something else.

these shoot great in my CVA Optima. I was skeptical of buying them at first but listened to my buddies and tried them. I will try a couple more kinds, but these shoot great with 100 and 150 grains of Triple 7. I sighted in at 1.5" high at 50 yards and 3.5" low at 100. Put 150 grains in and shot perfect at 100 yards. Very consistent with either load. We hunt woods, so I always shoot for dead on at 75, so I should be very close to what I want. If I start hunting fields and need to shoot farther I will load 150 grains of Triple 7 and should be just fine.

Ive shot powerbelts for two years now since I got my CVA Accura. I would shoot using 270gr. powerbelt with 100 gr. triple seven and zeroed at 50 yards because where I deer hunt, any shot further than 50 yards is rare. It was a bit of a headache sighting in but could get em dialed "good enough" to hit a deer.
I like them for the ease of use,good gas seal and that they are a full caliber bullet. Other than the ballistic tip falling out its an ok design.
Over this past 2011 deer season I shot a small doe at about 20 yards.She went down,then got right back up.I hit her again and that was that.While dressing it out I found my first shot in the right shoulder blade crushed like a smashed soda can.The bullet never penetrated the shoulder.I found my second shot stuck in the ribs on the opposite side.
Thats where powerbelt lost my confidence.
Ive shot deer with my old Hawkins rifle with homemade conical lead bullets that were devastating.The powerbelt couldn't outperform a 200 year old design.
Now that Ive changed spots to northern Missouri I need something I can shoot with a magnum load out to 200 yards if need be,Im not confident a powerbelt can do it.
Ive switched to the Hornady SST, Its not a full caliber bullet but the ballistic tip is molded into tip and they're a bit cheaper.My brother uses these bullets and he is happy with them so Ill give em a try.
