Just bought a CVA Optima MR from wmd and started looking at supplies. I been out of the muzzleloader game for a long time, what bullets have y'all found to be accurate and have the best performance on deer. In the past I tried Power Belt Aerotips, some TC SST/sabots and some 44 cal XTP/sabots with 777 pellets and some Jim Shockey Gold ffg. What's y'alls likes and dislikes?

Barnes MZ Expanders is all I've shot since the 90s. You can look thru the threads in here and read other's posts in agreement.



I firmly believe that a double gallows should be constructed on the East Lawn of The White House. Politicians who willfully and shamelessly violate their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America should be swiftly tried and, upon conviction, publicly hanged at sunup the day after conviction. If multiple convicts are to be hanged they can choose with whom to share the gallows or names shall be drawn from the hangman's hat to be hanged 2 at a time.

I get really good groups out of the XTP's, but have some concerns over them that may lead to me trying another bullet this year. I shot a doe a couple of years ago at about 125yds using a 240gr XTP and 2 777 pellets. She was DRT. Buddy of mine shot a doe last year with the same set up at about 50 yds, and she only went about 40 yds into some thick brush, but we never found a drop of blood from her. Both resulted in recoveries but not having a blood trail tends to make me a little nervous.

Same here. All the deer I've shot have been pass throughs and left buckets of blood behind if they weren't DRT. My gunsmith reamed the first inch or so of my barrel so they're easier to load. Accuracy has been outstanding.

I’ve found the most consistently accurate projectiles to be crusher rib sabot’s with XTP bullets, also if you’re a DIY’er Lee REAL bullets are also great

You only have to try Barnes once to get beyond all that.

The Harvester Scorpion 300 grain with the crush rib washer is all I shoot
