muzzleloading bullets

Anyone ever heard of an outfit called No Excuses Bullet Manufacturing? I shoot a .54, so i dont know if i need a 535 grain bullet. Although, I do like the idea of putting that much lead downrange.

Re: muzzleloading bullets

Are you sure the 535 isn't .535 bullet diameter?

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Re: muzzleloading bullets

NE produces huge bullets so thats most likely 535 grains. And if you are not hunting elk or moose, thats big time over kill for deer.

Re: muzzleloading bullets

Long heavy conicals like that work best in fast twist barrels found in modern inlines. I shoot No Excuses bullets in my White Rifles in .451 and .504 calibers. In the my .451, their 385gr bullets did not group well but the longer, heavier 460gr are great out to 200 yards. I normally shoot around 65 to 75gr of triple7 powder.

If I ever acquire a White Bison rifle in .540, I would try the No Excuses 535gr with 60gr to 80gr powder charge. I would use it for hunting deer or anything else. As you go up in powder, I am sure recoil gets worse but no need to punish yourself.
