I tried powerbelts once, I spent the better part of a morning trying to figure out why I couldn't group with them.
That same afternoon I went back with shockwaves and didn't have any problems grouping the Shockwaves at all,,,
so I'm certain it were the powerbelts that were causing all the problems that day.
That is exactly what I ran into last year and switched to the Shockwaves. This year same gun just changed to BH209 instead of 777 pellets and the powerbelts performed better. It was suggested that I try the Shockwaves again with 80 grains of BH209 and see what that does so hopefully it will get better.
