I used some 245 gr and 295 gr powerbelts when I first got my CVA muzzleloader. It is the bullet that CVA recommended that you use out of your ML. I was at first impressed with how easy they were to load. They were even fairly accurate when I first start shooting my CVA. After a year under my belt and my ML broke in a little bit I noticed I could never get consistent groups. I blamed it on the bullet and changed to Hornady’s and TC’s Shockwaves.

These bullets were tougher to load but I could once again drive tacks with my ML. I have also been told by some hunting friends of mine that these bullets will sometimes shatter upon impact. I will never go back to the powerbelts.

Good Hunting.


Some Other Reviews from Powder & Ammo

Remington Express Core-Lokt
If I am going to shoot a factory load at wild game the only round I am going to put in my rifle is the Core Lokt. Plenty enough accurate for me and a mushroom size that will stop whatever your shooting at in its tracks.

Hornady LeveRevolution .30/30
I had heard a lot of ‘rave’ reviews about Hornady’s LeveRevolution rounds, especially in .30/30, and had wanted to try it out to see if it performed to expectations.

Hornady SST Muzzleloader Bullets
The Hornady .45 cal sabot with .40 cal 200 gr sst/ml bullets have really made a difference in my muzzleloader shooting. Since changing over to the Hornady bullets I have been more accurate.
