    Hey,
    Yes I shot some of them last fall.
    Thinking that the accuracy would help on an antelope hunt.
    No such luck! they shot,, well the best group I got was 6"@ 100yds.
    But they where mostly in the 9"-12" size.
    That just doesnt cut it for me, so I went back to the power belts.
    They will shoot 2-3" out of my Knight T bolt and 700 Rem muzzle loader.
    Try them, they may shoot better for you.

    Good luck and hey let me know if they work for you.

    Tried them in my Rem 700 ML and found them to be quite satisfactory. Groups ran in the 11/2-2 inch range and they performed fine on two Carolina whitetails. I loaded them over 120gr of loose 777 and lit them off with Win 209's.
