Bullet Boxes/Cases?
« on: May 15, 2017, 12:53:48 PM »
Stupid question...outside of the speed loaders, what do you carry extra bullets in? I'm shooting the Barnes T-EZ, so they just come in that blister pack. I've tried searching online for muzzleloader bullet storage boxes but can't come up with anything. Thanks.

Your empty pyrodex pellet containers. Great speed loaders as well.

Thanks, that's probably what I'll end up doing if I can't find something else.

I carry three speed loaders and never use all three In a hunt.  The ziplock bags of extras are to refill the speed loaders should I spill one.  If I miss three times it is time to go home.  Lol.

in another TC 4-in-1 quick loader now. I used to carry a small piece of wood with about 6 holes drilled in it to hold my extra bullets. also kept a charge of loose powder in old shell cases.

I use to use the TC 4-in-1 but the new Traditions 5-in-1 speed loaders are much better in my opinion...

Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

Thanks, just ordered me some of these. Is the bullet starter that is built in sufficient for starting the Barnes bullets?

Yes! I believe it will work just fine to get it started and then pushed through the crown.  I do not use Barnes, but it works well with tight Lehigh bullets.

Old pill bottles work well, I use them and write with Sharpie if I have different weights and or types.

I've pretty much got everything now. I did call down there last week, but they didn't have the musket caps I was after. I'll have to keep them in mind when I need more bullets and powder.
