JUNK!! Plain and simple,im amazed that they sell so many of them. I guess when someone hits a deer with the powerbelt and dont find it,they just chaulk it up to missing the deer since they don't leave blood trails.

cecil30-30 how many bow hunters shoot a arrow thru a deer that has a 1.5" cut & they leave no blood trail? guts close holes off.a bad shot by the best bullet made wont plant a deer in its tracks.a 1/2" hole beats a smaller hole any day,a pass thru shot only means wasted energy & how much did the bullet xpand if it passed thru & what happened to the wasted energy that was lost in the dirt or trees after it hit the deer,did the tree die ? lol.guns dont kill like arrows,seen too many piss poor shots with all weapons to be blaming the broadhead or the bullet.not always a bad shot but in a hunting siutation things happen,most everybody wants to blame something or some one for the lost animal.its nobodys or no products fault 100% of the time.

Are you saying 2 shots point blank and still didn't kill the buck? Not sure I could say 100% that was the PB fault. I've shot PB and had pass throughs and some didn't. Some left blood and others didn't, but the deer was dead where I shot it. Using SST's and Barnes now and guess what, I don't always have a blood trail with them either, but the deer are dead just like the PB.

a shot to the lungs will do the job.

Check out the 250gr Powerbelt Aerolite I used.

Some good advice and info there Mike. yep I have heard of way to many deer with that so called perfect behind the shoulder shot that ran for hundreds of yards or were never found. Which in reality was a bad shot and is probably and more than likely the blame than the bullet.
