Are you saying that the coating is .0045 thick?? That would be a thick coating. I am assuming that the bullet is shedding that coating in order to fit into the bore??

It's a .500" bullet with a small coating of graphite that brings the final DIA to .5045 This allows the shooter to buy one bullet that will fit many bore sizes.
You're most likely referring to the shockwaves.They are accurate out of both the Omega's I've had.I was also suprised at how much less they dropped at 100 yards compared to the Hornady xtp's.Not nuts about the expansion but a .50 cal slug still does enough damage.burk313 said:Jason,the powerbelts I have shot are very inaccurate..The best bullets I have found for my Omega 50 caliber was made by Thompson Center a couple years ago called PTX saboted bullets which I heard contracted with Hornady to produce them..I MEAN these bullets were accurate to the point where you moved the scope adjustments and the bullet followed perfectly.It was called deadly accuracy.It is so hard to find muzzleloader bullets out there that can show this good accuracy.I have tried many brands.It is very hard to find these PTX bullets out there now.Thompson Center knew they are very accurate but had trouble finding another manufacturer to produce them.
