Sold by Muzzle-Loaders.com
PowerBelt™ Copper Bullets are both revolutionary in design and performance. These Copper Hollow Point Bullets are perfect for taking deer-sized game at ranges up to 200 yards. Unlike sabots, these bullets are full bore conicals and leave little plastic residue behind. PowerBelt™ Bullets can be shot up to eight times before the recommended barrel swab is required. Due to their .001” under bore diameter, they are particularly easy to load. PowerBelt's patented snap-on base gas seal eliminates gas blow by, while at the same time, gives you the optimal flight performance and down range accuracy you desire.
PowerBelt™ manufactures over 7 million muzzleloader bullets every year, making them the largest muzzleloading bullets manufacturer in the world.

"These hollow point bullets shoot and load well. Hit like a sledgehammer. I like the hollow point design. Within 100 yards, most muzzleloader kills, the hollow point performs flawlessly on deer sized game. Mushrooms well. You get 20 bullets for same price as 15 Aero tip bullets. I use these out of my flintlock and inline both shoot them well. I like the 295 grain weight"
"I have tried PowerBelt bullets several different times. They are easy to load and very accurate but they never hold together on game. I keep hoping they have improved but it is always the same thing. "
"If you're going to hunt small deer perfect bullet. I had horrible results with this bullet on elk with the 295 gr. it wouldn't penetrate if it hit bone it just blew up. However with 150 grain pyrodex they shot amazing but I switched to the hornady 250 gr sst and dropped a bull in his tracks 1 shot this year. "
"These PB bullets are not very accurate at 100 yd. I killed a buck at 30 yds the deer ran about 40 yds and dropped dead. The bullet fragmented badly. I only found small pieces of the bullet and found an exit wound about the size of a .22. I have had very good luck with the aroelite bullets 1/2 in group at 100 yds."
"Powerbelt bullets are the answer to all my muzzleloading problems. I have been trying to find the right bullet/powder/sabot combination for the last few years and I have finally found the answer. Trash the sabot and shoot the new Powerbelt Bullets. After buying a new Remington 700 MLS 50 caliber rifle a few years ago, I naturally wanted to shoot sabots and lots of Pyrodex to get flat shooting, hard hitting loads. I started with 100 grains of Pyrodex and a 44 caliber, 240 grain Hornady pistol bullet in a plastic sabot. The rifle shot pretty good but the more I shot it the worse the accuracy got. I cleaned it and cleaned it again but I would not feel comfortable shooting past 50 yards with it.
Then the real fun started when I switched to Pyrodex pellets. The bullets started flying all over the place and the sabots were being ripped to shreds. I changed to MAGNUM sabots (who ever heard of such a thing?) and things got a little better, but not good enough. I was ready to sell the Remington and buy a new rifle, but fortunately saw O'neill Williams' TV show on black powder hunting before I made the change . O'neill is a pretty straight shooter, (with advise or a muzzleloader), so based on his recommendation, I tried some Powerbelt Bullets.
Powerbelt bullets are made expressly for muzzleloaders. The Aero Tip bullets look like big fat Nosler BallisticTip rifle bullets with a plastic gas check on the base. Powerbelts have a thin copper jacket and come in .45, .50 and .54 caliber. Each caliber has several choices of weights. One thing that is not readily apparent is that the slug is slightly under size for the bore and very easy to load. There is much less resistance felt when loading a Powerbelt than a sabot load. The company says the bullet actually expands when fired to fill the riffling of the barrel. I don't understand all the engineering, but I can tell you it works. They are very accurate and that streamlined design retains energy for hard hitting power.
My Remington 700 will shoot Powerbelts into 2" groups at 100 yards. Nothing has ever come close to that accuracy before. ThePowerbelt web site has lots more info and lists all the available bullet weights for each caliber. And for Ballistics Junkies like me, they have provided ballistics tables for all the bullets. To give you an idea of how well these little beauties perform, a .50 caliber 245 grain Aero Tip backed by 150 grains of Pyrodex will have over 1000 foot pounds of energy at 200 yards!! Sighted in for a 150 yard zero, the trajectory is only 2.25" high at 100 yards and only 5.8" at low at 200 yards.
I can't say enough about how well they shoot and can't wait to get out in the woods this fall. I have total confidence in the Powerbelts and my old Remington. No doubt about it, this combo can put the venison on the table this year."
