Powerbelt isnt a jacketed bullet, its simply a very thin coating to prevent lead build up in the rifling.

Well FG - that is something I did not know. But I would never doubt anything you say about the PB. You are the PB Man/Guru, no question.

Get some Blackhorn 209, 100 gr –(71 grains weighed). It has shot better than T7 in all my guns,( haven’t tried it in my Omega). No crud ring – no swabbing -no cleanin for two week – first shot in group with others every time so far. I have shot two jars of it so far.

bowbender6, well the only problem I forsee with it is if every one likes it it will be in real short supply soon, I had a case to start with but with all the other powder I have laying around I can't leave it alone so maybe I better get an other case while its still available. Lee

I need to get some more also, I see a shortage in hunting season once people start trying it. I have 2 jars left and my families guns are almost sighted in but it is not supposed to go bad. I found it locally ( they are kind of a distributor) for $30. I need to stock up.

I would be concerned about the price holding down the market but it seems to sell out in the first few days if they dont start with a large supply, all the seasonal shooters will likely go to it in time because its easier to get to shoot and offers the same type advantages as smokeless. You are lucky I have to order mine and end up paying 32.80 a can even getting a case at a time. Lee

Has anyone asked Western/Accurate about the supply side situation. There may be less risk of shortage than one might imagine. I could even see the price coming down a little if production is robust and more dealers enter the scene.
