  • Designed for muzzleloaders and black powder cartridge arms
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Caution Used this powder with Remington clean bore primers 209 and power belt aero tips (newer black ones). After shooting about 50 rounds out of a CVA OPTIMA off a lead sled, I couldn't get a better grouping than 10" yes 10 inches at 100 yards! I know that there are several separate components here that could have caused this, but this powder was one of the links in the chain that was causing this issue. I changed to white hots, power belt hollow points and 777 primers and off the hood of my jeep at 100 yards I had 1-2" groupings. I know that I changed everything but just wanted to put a warning out there. The new combination saved my hunt!! November 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pellets I shoot a cva 50 cal and I have had great luck with these pellets . The pellets always fire with no problems. As you no in the field that's not what you need to be worried about. Love your product thanks October 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Consistency This is a great product and gives you what is Important........consistency. I shoot a T/C Impact with 250 grain PowerBelt AeroLite plus these equals dead deer. March 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Consistency Consistency is key for muzzleloaders, and it doesn't get any easier than exact powder charges on every shot. I've never had a problem with these going off. My shots on target are consistent. I haven't tried Triple 7 or White Hot because I don't fell the need to. December 28, 2011

A: 
If you have pellets with a percussion cap they should work but will not give you the same blast as a 209 inline ingnition system.

When in doubt double check with a gun smith or the manufacturer to see what they recommend.

A: 
They could work in a revolver but I would check with the manufacturer or a gun smith that you trust before trying.

The discs/pellets are made for use with a 209 in-line ingnition system and you'll be wasting $$ if you use them in anything but an in-line action.

Pellets in inline, but side ignition muzzle loader have to use granular. pellets are quicker load and every pellet should be close to the same measurement. more consistency.

A: 
well my dad was the first to use pellets he was shooting with the small caps not the 209 primers and they would work fine but when store for while in the gun they would not go off but when he switched over to granule he has not had that problem so when i got my 1 black powder gun i went with the granule i might try the peelts some time they are supposed to work better with the 209 primers but all that said i went with granule

A: 
I'm sorry I cannot speak for the granule as I've never used them. However, I've used four boxes of the pellets over the last several years and have LOVED them. I use powerbelt ammunition and I've always had equal burn and accuracy out of this combination. Hope this helps.

im new to muzzle loading, can you explain loading detail in easy to understand words? from beggining to end.

A: 
If you are using an inline muzzle loader (this means that the primmer is in a strait line behind powder or pellets) clean the weapon then fire two to three primmer to clear out the hole in the breach plug (where the primmer is) after a few seconds put in the pellets or powder then projectile. using a bullet starter push the bullet down a few inches then with ram rod seat the bullet all the was down until it is up against the powder. when you are sure you are at the powder mark the rod so you will be consistent with every load. now put the primmer on and you are ready to shoot. This is a very brief description of what to do you need someone to help you when you shoot the first time. If something is not done correctly people can be hurt. most gun shops can help.

A: 
First read YOUR instruction manual or call the manufacturer to have them send you a manual. Nothing replaces the manufacturers instructions.

In general here's what you have to do with all muzzleloaders.
1. Check and make sure the rifle's breech is empty by putting the ram rod down and KNOWING at what depth is empty.
2. Measure your powder into a loading tube. Never load directly into a gun barrel.
3. Dump the powder from the loading tube into the barrel.
4. Place the projectile - patch & ball, sabot, etc... in the barrel.
5. Using the ball starter push the projectile into the barrel.
6. Use the long part of the ball starter push the projectile further into the barrel.
7. Use ram rod to push projectile all the way to bottom.
8. Confirm that everything is seated properly by check the depth of the ram rod against a known depth for that load and ball.
9. Place cap or primer in the rifle.
10. Go hunt!

Note: these a simplified directions and you should refer to your manufacturer instruction manual or a trusted gun smith before attempting to fire the blackpowder rifle.

Remember alway keep the barrel pointed in a safe direction and never overload or double load your rifle. Bad things WILL happen.

Good hunting,

A: 
ok step one clean your barrel, free of extra lube or build up. use the JAG with a dry patch, go down and up a few times

JAG= the ridged cylynder usually on the end of your ram rod.(picture 1)

drop in the pyrodex pellets. (2 is 100GR 3 is 150 GR) with the dark black side down.

slip in your bullet. i reccomend the non saboted hollow point ( i reccomend the hollow point powerbelt ) easy to slide down.

before you shoot for the first time be sure you are all seated in the barrel. MARK YOUR RAM ROD WITH A FULL BARREL this will help you remember if its loaded at the range or not ( there will be times you forget)

if your gun is a 209, open the BREECH and insert your primer.

209 = shotgun primer. (picture 2)
breech. the hindge area or area your cap is put in(picture 3)

now pull back your hammer. aim and fire!

once you fire.

if your in the field and shot a deer. run your ramrod down the barrel one or 2 times to stamp out any embers. embers will make your powder go poof!

then proceed to load.

if sighting in. after every shot. clean your barrel useign standard cleaning practices. why? because in the field your not shooting with a dirty hot barrel. so at the range use a clean cold barrel every time you shoot. takes longer. but more on target.

i hope this has helped. remember know your target and beond. these are rifles not shotguns.

now im not sure if you were refering to muzzy its self or now that i see about it working in handguns. in handguns i do not know. i assume but ask your lokal shop for more info. they are verry closely related.

there are many online forums that can help you. due to guide lines i can not specify a website i and thousands of others frequent but you can search on google for a forum to belong to.
