The one thing that i think stands out in the difference between the two is how much cleaner Trip 7 burns compared to paradox. Youll really apreciate it after a day at the fireing range when you go to clean it. I started using Paradox pellets about three years ago but decided to give Trip 7 a try this year and i love it. \:\)

Just don't use number 11 caps with 777 pellets.

I'm using 2 50gr of triple seven and 245 grain Powerbelt, but I'm gonna switch bullet combos before next year. Cleanest powder I ever used was Clean Shot by far.

I used 777 and powerbelts last year, and now use 777 and 240gr. Nosler HD sabots. I was shooting the 245 powerbelt with the plastic tip, it shot good with 2 pellets, but we had a couple of powerbelts fall out of the barrel, and leave nothing but the green plastic base, so we quit using them. They are not suppose to come apart according to powerbelt, but all of the ones we had would come apart. They are easy to load, but that is not always good, if you notice most of the TV guys use sabots with the Encore. Of course most will shoot whatever is free to them, I just feel more secure with the sabot.

Used a 245 gr aerotip powerbelt and 100 grs of 777 last year on an 8 pt. Hit him from the front in the front shoulder and continued into the chest cavity. No exit and all I found was pieces. Ran about 50 yards with no blood trail until the last few yards.

I would seriously considering using 777 loose powder instead of the pellets. I hear many shooters (that shoot a lot) having problems with misfires (pellets not igniting) with pelletized powders. With loose powder, no misfires.

If you're going to use Powerbelts, use the heaviest varieties (348 or 405 grn). The 295 grn and smaller don't penetrate deer well. They tend to explode on contact.
