Powerbelt Bullets
« on: November 20, 2019, 04:56:12 PM »
Alan so kindly sent me some high Tech Powerbelt AeroLite .45 250 grain bullets to try out in the .458 Quackenbush LA Outlaw. Thank you Alan!

Right off the bat I must say these bullets are jewel like in their appearance.

My scale says they are 258 grains though who knows how accurate this thing is.

I happen to have two home cast bullets that are close in weight and I’ll compare the bullets when I get a chance to go shoot them.

My Calipers say that the plastic tail piece is .460 and the shiny metal portion’s largest diameter is .4485.

More to come!

About what I expected for diameters.... The nose is bore-riding, the plastic will fully engage the rifling....

Yes, but what happens if these shoot better than any of the others? Only testing will tell.

I've ask around the gun club if anyone has shot any of these, and I couldn't find anyone. However, one guy told me his brother shoots them in his TC muzzle loader, but didn't know any particulars.

So Steve, you get to be the guinea pig. I say this, because their CS department did not know of anyone shooting them in an airgun.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
