muzzleoader/inline bullets

What are you guys using as your muzzleloader/inline bullets? I currently use shockwaves in my T/C Omega, but was looking to see if maybe there was something better out there.

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin

Barnes Expanders out of my Encore 50 (original version)
Very accurate out to 200 yds. ( maybe longer, but I have not shot it out to anything longer than 200 yds)

I'm pretty new to the inline game, but I have been using .45 caliber 250 grain Hornady xtp bullets with sabots out of my traditions G4 ultralight. I have not experimented with other bullets yet, but have been happy with the xtp so far. Out of the flintlock I shoot hornady pa conicals.

Yep, 240-300gr XTPs seem to perform better than Shockwaves for us. This year I am trying-out the 265gr Hornady Interlocks, inside a Harvester Crush Rib sabot.

Self-cast 250 gr R.E.A.L. slugs because they're (not "there" nor "their") accurate and cheap.

Not hard on our wallets, so most-anything made by Hornady...
XTPs
Monoflex
FTX
Interlocks
SSTs

They are all good muzzleloader bullets.

250gr Barnes TEZ ,but I have some Knight Bloodsport 250gr to try. They use a Lehigh Defense bullet.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

TC ProHunter 209x50. With an RCBS 45-405 cast bullet, MMP Orange Sabot and Blackhorn 209 powder. Harvested every deer that I shot at.

I use the same bullet and Sabot in my flintlock over a load of 3f.
