Hey Scrub: Really nice gun and very good choice! A younger buddy of mine just bought the Bone Collector version of your gun and it is absolutely gorgeous. We went and dialed it in 2 weeks ago. I set him up with the same combo I'm using, 2-50 grain pellets of 777 and 300 grain Hornady SST's. I laser bore sighted it before we went, and he was dead nuts at 100 yds. in 3 shots. I switched him over to Harvester Crush Rib sabots, they load easier after a few shots and shot the same as the factory sabots. As for your Powerbelts, I've another friend with the exact same gun as yours, and the Belts shoot well for him. I am not in the "T/C or nothing club", but what I can tell you is that if you "play" with the other guns out there, as far as closing, trigger pull, hammer cocking, etc., you can definitely feel and hear the extreme quality of T/C. This is the last black powder rifle you will ever have to buy.
