Well, the NoExcuses didn't fit to my satisfaction. I don't like a loose fit, and they were way too loose. I'm not sure BH would even fire with such a loose fit.

Right now my plan is to use a 348gr Powerbelt with 80gr of BH. I want to see for myself if they work, or not. I think most PB failures were hunter errors. Too light a weight PB, too much powder, or a lousy shot.

btw I don't just hunt for elk. I hunt for mule deer almost as much. Tags are harder to get. but I always put in for a deer tag in the draw.

That is a bummer but that is why we test.

I like to say trust but verify. Make sure your PB is still in the barrel and not fallen out since you cary your rifle muzzle down. That is the one complaint that sticks out in my mind.

Guys must have had loose bores that had that problem. My bore is .500, and PB's fit pretty tight.

I already tried it. The problem is the lead id so soft that the bullet gets sized when you start it, and then it just falls to the breech. Knurling just made it start harder, and then still falls to the breech.

I don't think BH would even fire with such a loose fit.
