Muzzleloader Bullets for Washington
« on: March 14, 2022, 08:15:16 AM »
What bullets are you all using for your muzzleloaders? We have had excellent results with Barnes, Thor, and Hornady BoreDrivers but we want to get your thoughts on the matter.

For WA I used Barnes 290gr T-EZ, Swift 300gr muzzleloader saboted bullet, and Beartooth 320gr hardcast in sabot.   For Oregon am going with some Thors that I purchased from you guys now.

Barnes Spit-Fire T-EZ 250g is the only bullet I've ever bought for my muzzleloader. Worked on the last two bucks I shot with it.  :dunno: Haha!

I have used MMP's HPH24 sabot with a 250 gr. Hornady FTX bullet for the last 10 years for deer and it has worked every time for 25 yds. to 190 yds. If and when I can get the 250 gr. Barnes bullets for the 450 Bushmaster I might try them in my MMP sabots as I have shot Barnes in all my rifles since the early 90's.

Shot 2 bulls with Barnes 290-TMZ.  Neither one complained (or even moved after the shot).
