The shock waves shoot well out of both my muzzle loaders with blackhorn,I've killed 2 deer with them and the bullet performed very well however neither one passed through due to quartering shots but either deer didn't go 30 yards before piling up,I think on a broadside they would pass through no problem

I found the same, super accurate but little if any expansion unless hitting a large bone.

I shoot the hornady sst 250 the 3 deer i have shot complete pass thru and none of them made it 40 yds
Same here. I shoot them out of my Savage MLII at about 2100fps muzzle velocity. Since I began using them in 2010, I have shot a 90 lbs doe, a 130 lbs buck and a 170 lbs buck, all within 65 yards. None of them made it further than 30 yards and all of them were complete pass through shots. This is a picture of the entry hole of the 130lbs buck from last year. This shot was 25 yards.

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.

Nice hole . I hope they perform well . I ha to buy the 250 grain last min cause I only had a few of my regular bullets left. They looked like they might be alright but
Was wondering what to expect after shooting a deer. I am just very glad they shouldn't perfo like them ole mag sabots cause they sucked IMO

In 250 or 300 gr you have a good solid performing bullet there. What powder will you be using?

I will be shooting 100 grain triple 7 smokeless or the sulfer free powder. Bullet was dead on on the first shot even being lined up with other brand bullet
