I've got a few Barnes bullets like that. Including the one in my avatar.

My setup:
110Gr loose 777 powder
LeHigh Defense controlled fracture 265gr
MMP Sabots

My cow two years ago dropped in her tracks
My bull last year made it to a ditch about 30 yards away and then he fell.

Both had injuries to all thoracic organs.  These bullets are downright devastating. 

I have never had problems with loose powder.  I've had several issues with pellets.

And that is a very good load, bullet, accurate, and will thump the heck out of an animal!

Not quite the same load as yours but equal results!

I tried pellets for awhile... a short while but have always been more than satisfied with good old volume loads of loose powder  - either T7 or BH



Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

I'd hope you'd say that considering you're the one I learned it from!   :chuckle:
