Check out the black powder forum powerbelts are a poor choice of bullets when you use over 80 grains of powder. They de fragment when they get pushed by heavy charges causing a lot of wounded & lost deer.

Your gun has a 1-48" twist.My TC .54 Renegade likes 100gr/FFG with a .018 patch and .530" ball or cast TC maxi-ball 430gr slug on top of 90gr FFG.The latter load outdoes the 45-70 that thinned out the bison........................Harold
