They are worth every penny. Exactly what I use and they hit really hard.

wmi, I'm going to try the Barnes bullet in the new T/C Triumph rifle at the range. Should get it early next week and mount the scope. I'm reading where people are getting better groups using grandular powders over pellets what do you know on this? Thanks HM

I only use the granular powder u would be amazed how much 5 to 20 grains will improve accuracy. You cant do that with pellets. Also have switched to bh209 well worth it no crud ring!

very good point on the grandular powder. I'm an old black powder and pyrodex man and need to learn some of the new current loadings. Thanks

Just tried the Blackhorn powder this weekend and all I can say is WOW!. Finally something /product that does excatly what they say it will do. A little bit of a pain to go to powder versus pellets however 3/4 or less groups at 100 yards is unbelievable. I use to think 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 was good for a muzzle loader but not anymore.
Even an old dog can learn new tricks.
