Default 245 gr powerbelt

Has anyone shot an animal with the 245 gr powerbelts. I shot them along with 100 gr of pyrodex powder pellets and they performed well at the range. I was wondering how good the killing power is, if anyone has any experience.

Thanks

THe .245 grain Powerbelt is a good shot with 100 grain of pyrodex behind it. Believe me it's deadly on almost all game

My son and I will also be trying the 245 gr Powerbelts this Saturday. I will admit that I'm a little concerned about performance on deer after reading some of the discussions. I will be using 90 gr. Prodex RS Select, and I think my son will be using 100 Gr. pellets. They punch holes in paper good out to 100 yd, but deer aren't made of paper. We are still experimenting with other bullets in case we don't have good performance from the powerbelts. Might try their 295 all lead ones.
