Default Nice Powerbelt load for the Accura...

110 grains of Black MZ and a 270 grain Powerbelt Platinum shot .5 moa. Also with the Konuspro 275, the bottom crosshair was dead on the bull's eye at 175 yards with this load.

This will be a deadly combo for deer and hogs! Our deer season begins August 15th... just around the corner!

Good luck with your power belt load. Not too many on here care for them.

You'll do fine with that load.

If you want to pay a premium price for a sub premium product...Have at it.

A Thor is about the same price and a true premium quality bullet.

He's happy with the load. Let it go. He didn't ask anybody what he should use.

Sorry if I was misleading,,, the last two shots at 100 yards measured 1/2"... almost cut the same hole in the bull.

Then I wanted to see where the last cross hair on my scope was hitting,,, thought it should be real close at 175 and it was dead on the money.

I really like the Black MZ powder as well... shot awesome and clean up was a snap... not to mention the $9.99 price tag...

I killed 3 or 4 deer with powerbelts- the original ones. My mk85 could shoot the heck out them. But I did switch to speer 45cal pistol bullets in 260gr if i remember right. I then switched to noslers. The powerbelts were by far the most accurate bullet I have loaded in my gun.
