Buffalo Bullet SSB?

I may have asked this question here before but I have yet to find the answer. Does Buffalo Bullet Co. still make the .50 cal 285 gr. SSB? I bought a box years ago for practice bullets because they were much cheaper than powerbelts and realized they shot better than any other bullet I've shot out of my flintlocks. I am almost out of them and have not been able to find them anywhere. Does anyone know if they are still in production and if so how can I get them? If not, I think I'm going to try the TC Maxi Hunter or a bullet I found on Midway made by Lightfield that looks real similar to the SSB. Anybody have any experience with these bullets?

Re: Buffalo Bullet SSB?

Believe they quit making bullets...


I shoot the 245gr Ball-et and can't find them....through a couple forums I bought more than enough to last me...especially knowing the rifle is going to be a back up rifle in the near future...

Same as you...they are the only bullet to fly well and they perform well for me...its either that or a round ball...and I just wasn't happy with the 50cal round ball performance... I couldn't get one to exit...the ball-et penetrates like crazy...

They quit making sabot/bullets under their name. The closest to them in-design are the Precision Extreme Elites.

Precision Extreme Elites link.

Keep-in-mind when looking at the page, there are four pages of their Extremes.

Also, I do know a gunshop that has many boxes of the Buffalo SSBs. They would be willing to ship them to you. Just must agree on a price first. Ask for Bob or the store manager and tell them they are on the floor of the muzzleloader accessories section.



I have seven 36-pk boxes of the 285 grains remaining. No desire to sell them right now.
