Hornady PA Conical

Just wondering if anyone used these for their muzzle loaders? We have used Buffalo Ball-ets for years with fantastic results. Now supplies running low and Buffalo Bullet Company gone, these look like the.next best thing!!!

I've used them for a few years in my 50 cal. Hawken. They shoot well for me and do a number on whitetails

Re: Hornady PA Conical

I didn't know the Buffalo Ballet company (or the company that made these) either went out of business or quit making the Ballet.

I usually shoot the Hornady Conical's but I have a small supply of the BB's and they work just as well as the Hornady's. I shoot the BB's when I run out of the Hornady's.

That's to bad. It was a good product.

I used to use the conical, but went with the Hornady Great Plains bullet. Never looked back.

Re: Hornady PA Conical

Buffalo Bullet company is back in business but you can't buy direct from them. I called them last week and he directed me to Dixie Gun Works. He didn't say what other retailers were retailing their product but Dixie had a good selection on their website.

Hey Dutch; what twist are you shooting those Great Plains bullets with. They work pretty good on deer I take it from your post

Patch and Roundball only for me. You don't need them fancy bullets.

I'll take the fancy bullets as they seem to put a deer down, to stay, better than the roundballs.

I know of 3 deer taken with roundballs, that never bled, in snow.

It don't matter what I'm shooting out of the old flinter, I can't hit the side of a barn with it.

That's why I switched to the Conical. At least they will have a blood trail to follow. I've put down doe that never had a blood trail as the entrance hole closed up. The deer only went 100 yards at most....just no trail to follow.
