Tried this load today for my .50 CVA Optima. This is my first year shooting an in-line, after many years of traditional patched ball shooting.

110 gr loose 777, 240 gr all lead TC Cheap Shots. This target was at 100 yards.

I bought these bullets as cheaper practice rounds: they're supposed to have the same ballistics as the XTP copper-jaketed. With this accuracy, I'm thinking of using them while hunting. I've had good luck with the deer I've shot with the little .490 round ball, so I'm thinking these pure lead 240 grain jobs should work OK.

After reading the thread on Round Ball vs. Conical, I'm not so sure.

Anyone out there use this load on a deer? Were you pleased?

It's not rocket surgery, for crying outside!
