Have had great results with Barnes 290 tez, this year I switched  to the tmz. The only reason I switched was I needed bullets and the tmzís were available. They werenít much harder to load and very slightly better BC so I just stayed with them.

personally I use one form of a Lehigh product or another...

The Lehigh/Knight Bloodline is a great bullet, either the 300 or the 275 grain models.  The terminal performance these bullets offer is outstanding.

This is the .458x300 CF





The Lehigh 275 is virtually the same except a little shorter.

This a computed Ballistic sheet for the two bullets to show comparison



Lehigh is also now offering a .452x265 CF copper bullet that is also a great bullet.



265 Ballistics...



Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!
