    Do you use powerbelts for your muzzle loader? What do you think about them?

    Ya, I love them. I've witnessed 3 deer killed with them just this year. One of them dropped and the other two did not require any tracking. Great bullet!

      I used them this year and DID have to track "her" for about 110 yds.
      Not alot of blood on the trail either.
      Good shot though. Pass through, "popped" both lungs.
      Missed the heart though(bad angle).

          I use the powerbelt platinum aerotip 270 gr. in my 50. I love them they do a great job on deer and hogs.
          My 54 I use 348 gr. aerotip. I've only taken hogs with it but it does the job very well.

            I like that powerbelt are full bore, fly straight and hit hard. I've been using them for years and they've never failed me.

                  Ive used them for 3 years now, and killed 4 deer with them. every one a nice clean kill 2 died in place one droped in 10 yards the other in 30, one downside I noticed is that there isnt much of a blood trail. at least not on mine.

                    I'm glad to hear they are good bullets. A friend in the industry gave me 300 of the 295 grain copper bullets with aero-tips. Got to get one of those cva optimas next.

                      I have shot the 295 grain hollow point copper Power Belts for several years in my 50 caliber. I have killed 5 deer with them and they worked well. The accuracy of them is excellent and they are easy to load.

                        Court reversed abortion, back to the States where it should have been in the first place. Let them vote on it.

                        I think what you are saying is that our elected officials would disarm the public to prevent an armed insurrection.
