Another Muzzleloader Question


Recommended Posts

Ok, so what I learned from you guys is that the best primers, especially for Blackhorn 209 is the Winchester 209 (for shotshells), CCI 209M, and Federal 209A.

With current scarcity, I'm getting what I can get. I'm going to be shooting 300 grain Powerbelt Aerolites out of a CVA Optima V2, using Pyrodex RS. Can I use less hot primers since the Aerolites fly best using 100 grains of powder? 

If so, which ones? Anybody using this exact setup?

stay away from the Power Belts they have been known to have issues

Barnes T-EZ either 250gr. or the 290gr. either one  you will not be tracking your game

I use the 250gr and Triple 7 Magnum Pellets

What are the issues with Powerbelts?  My brother continues to have success with them.

I have over the last few years seen complaints on expansion 

I've been using T/C Shockwaves forever. They are marginal at best. Never lost a deer, but the track jobs are stressful sometimes.  I will be trying Barnes Xpanders and Hornady SST Low Drag this off season.

Zero issues with Powerbelts here

Hornady SST are the same as TC Shockwave just different in color

Electric I see your load is Triple seven three pellets, which is similar to my load two pellets of Triple 7 Magnums, and T/C barrels are all the same try the Barnes T-EZ

Who are you buying the Barnes from?
