Default Muzzleloader Bullets

What muzzle loader bullets do you guys use? I am looking for feedback from your experiece with actually shooting deer with them. Bloodtrails, expansion..etc...

I am trying to decide what bullet to use on my Kansas ML hunt next month.

Thanks,

Sam

Depens on what type of muzzleloader you are talking about. I have hunted with a flintlock rifle and pistol all my life, and I am not young. I use roundball. Now if you are talking in-line then I would recommend Hornady new FFB and it doesnt need a sabot. Have also used there SST-ML and really like it also. I use three pellets of triple 7 with these loads. Do not like the power belt bullets. They seem to hard to load but that is just me.

Thumbs up

If you haven't started, then you need to get an assortment and start shooting that thing, see which one will shoot the best group for you, practice and more practice and then get yourself a BIG O BUCK.
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR HUNTING TRIP

Was that you at Santa Rosa Shooting Center yesterday sighting in the muzzleloader? If so, I was next to you with the lever action before the storm came in.
