295gr Aerotip and 120gr Loose Pyrodex - 8pt

They work. Dont use pellets, if you PACK them hard enough, the break.
Spike bucks come with their own meat skewers.

Alright, I'm here now who wants my autograph??

Hey 444marlin do you have any troubles seating your bullets the same with loose powder? I tried 777 loose with Aerotips and found that I wasn't seating the bullet the same each time. I have my rod marked and it wasn't the same for each load. I thought that the loose powder wasn't always getting packed into the base of the powerbelts so the bullets wasn't being seated the same each time. Went back to pellets like I have always used without any problems.

I shoot an Encore (50 cal) with two 50 gr 777 pellets and a 295 gr powebelt. Of all the deer I've shot with it, only one was a pass through. None went >50 yards, most less than that but BSK is right. Most of mine have been well mushroomed but stopped under the skin on the off side.

I put another post on about the Barnes bullets- quit using the sabots about 3 years ago because they were so darned hard to reload, even afoer one firing with 777. Any experience with them recently- have they gotten easier to load?
