I set up my new Optima V2 shooting 100 grains of Pyrodex pellets with a 250 grain Powerbelt bullet...got it sighted in pretty good with a Nikon Inline XR scope but wondering what other loads people are pleased with...not wanting to go the powder route...too lazy.

I use 100 gr. WhiteHots, Winchester 777 primer coupled to a Hornady XTP 240 gr. This put a 6 pointer down in his tracks.
