I have been using the dead centers for 2 years. Great accuracy and will kill them dead too.

Last year Doe with a 240 DC. Deer went 40 yards but left a blood trail 5 feet wide all the way to her.

No trouble at all. Each pack come with a plastic loader that attaches to your ram rod so you dont bugger up the ballistic tip.

I shoot Dead Centers. 300gr in my Triumph with 120 gr of Pinnacle Gold which you can't get anymore. Dead on at 100 and drops 3" at 150 yds. Also bought the Super Rat from same place that is made for loading the polymer tip bullets. You do get a plastic one with each pack of bullets too.

Ok, sighted in with the Dead Centers. I put it in a vise & removed the nipple, bore sighted to an orange sticker 50 yds away. The first shot cut the bullseye @ 5 o'clock position. The plastic starter that comes with the pack was too small dia. wise to thread into my ramrod. I sighted them in 1 1/2" high @ 50 yds with 100gr pyrodex. After giving it a good cleaning, I'm pumped about Saturday, I can't wait. Thanks land I hope to post resulting pics!
