Default Powerbelt 245gr.

anyone have experience shooting the powerbelts? I have heard mixed reviews on these, but wanted to try them out. i was out at the range on friday afternoon with my nephew, but I only got a chance to bore sight and take just a few shots. It is getting closer, but need some more time at the range to see if they will shoot consistently. what do you guys think of these powerbelts? I know I like the way they load...much easier than the sabots.

I use 250gr Barnes expander bullets with a Harvester Crush Rib sabot...I can load it with 2 fingers. I would trust my life on a Barnes bullet.

I've heard the same info, you either like them or not. Seems like those with a slight overbore have better luck that the tight bores like in the TC line. From what I've seen owners of CVA rifles report good accuracy from the power belts. I haven't tried them.

Well, I have a CVA optima now, so maybe they will shoot well for me. Will report back after thursday at the range.

I shoot the 295gr. Powerbelts. I would recommend getting a pack of 245 as well as 295 Each gun shoots a little different with each. From what I've been told. Originally I had the 245's but while sighting my rifle in last year, a friend gave me a couple of the 95's. With my rifle (CVA Kodiak) I get better accuracy, consistently with the 95's. Good Luck.

I shot the245s out of my tc and did o.k as far as groups but upon some experimentation at the range found the tc superglides to be more accurate and consistent.

I purchased a Traditions Pursuit LT this year and have always used the powerbelt 245 gr. While sighting in this new rifle, I couldn't keep even a 7" group. I decided to try TC shockwaves and put the next 7 shots within a 2" group. Knowing the rifle was sighted in accurately I tried the powerbelts and again all over the target. I have switched. Just seemed too inconsistant for me.
