Re: Colorado Muzzleloader Advice

Note that Powerbelts are famous for exploding when driven with too much powder. Most people like to stay under 100gr 777 or Pyrodex with them.

Omegas are not noted as good conical shooters due to the QLA, so that somewhat limits your options. Maybe the new Hornaday bullet that is sort of like a Powerbelt?

Re: Colorado Muzzleloader Advice

I killed 2 deer this fall with my 50 cal. omega with the power belts. I have never seen anything due so much damage as it does. These shots was under 100 yards, went in and actually broke both shoulder bones in half.
