Yeah this had been discussed on here alot in past threads. I used pellets years ago for a little while when they were new and then went back to loose powder. The ONLY good thing about pellets is they are easier to handle than loose powder charges. They are never consistent. Don't burn fully, and make your gun dirtier quicker than loose powder. It's a sales gimmick if you ask me. They suck.

I've had zero complaints with my 209 muzzleloader using the 50 gr. Pyrodex pellets. They were game changing for me. Never had any issues with them except for the multiple dead deer I needed to cut up and haul out.

I prefer loose powder but if I were to choose a pellet I would choose 777. It creates more velocity and is about 50x easier to clean up after
