Oh okay, good deal. Did you make sure to ask about the 10% off? It helps in the long run when ordering bulk.

Nope forgot about that. Good thing is they said they will send me an invoice maybe I will bring it up with them before I send my payment.

Thanks guys for all of the input, I decided on the Barnes expander mz 250gr. Well let me clarify, my muzzleloader decided on that bullet, not me I paired that bullet up with an mmp sabot in front of 90gr. 777 Ffg for best results.
sept 10 here we come!

I am using a CVA 50 cal. I am going to try the FPB's but what powder are you using.

I have a trusty old CVA that I have shot for years with 295 gr. powerbelts (777 110 grains & 209 primer). I have dropped 2 cow elk in their tracks with broadside shots of 50 yards & 35 feet. That said, I had a very bad experience with them last year. I had a straight on frontal shot @ 30 yards on my first bull. My hit was low & just right of the sternum. The bull ran & bled for more that 3/4 of a mile. the bleeding stopped and I never recovered the animal after 5 full days of looking for him. (with help too!) I will change my bullets. I dont understand what went wrong on this bullet, but they are now just plinkers until I find a different bullet that will do what I expect it to do.

I had trouble with my ram rod ketching on the tip of FPB's and even pulled the tips out of a couple. I was getting down to the wire to go hunting with it and couldnt find any attachment locally so I drilled a little out of the end of my ram rod so it didnt hit the tip and it worked fine.
