I know there has been some discussion on the performance of Power belts over last couple weeks, I havent read the complete threads, but I thought Id would share this story with everyone so they can rate them a little more. The Powerbelt in Question with me is the 295 grain hollow point, although they do group very well with my gun, a newer Knight, I have had very poor expansion from these bullets on the last couple of deer I shot, with very poor blood trails, little if any.. Ive shot three deer in the past two seasons myself with the 295 grain bullet, loading 100 grains of Pioneer, Id say total there may have been a cup of blood from all three on the ground, and two of the three were not pass-thrus, on the positive side, I have not wounded any deer and they have all died within a hundred yards or so. But I guess what really puzzled me is this past weekend I took my good friend out to fill a doe tag, we had a good slightly quartering towards us shot on a nice size doe at 85 yards, again we were shooting my end loader with 100 grains of powder and the 295 grain hollow point powerbelt. I watched as Duane pulled the trigger and from what I could tell he made a good shot looking though my binoculars. As we approached the area where the deer was standing we could see no blood, not a drop ( I did find some hair) but with light fading we started on the track and ended up going nearly 50 yards before we could find a drop, and it was a pin drop, the Sure Fire picked up in the snow. Now long story short the deer only went about another 80-90 yards, and did not bleed much at all, if there wasnt any snow that may have turned into a major search. I rolled the deer over and found the shot entered just perfect, right behind the front shoulder, perfect height and no exit hole; I felt around the rib cage and found the round lodged in between the meat and the skin just outside the rib cage in the gut area. What shocked me is when I cut the skin open I found what looked to be a bullet in perfect shape, and I mean I could have loaded this thing again and took another shot, the belt was still even attached ?? Im not sure what the majority thinks but I sure would like to believe there should have been some expansion. The other rounds I've pulled out of deer have at least expaned a little. Either way will shoot the rest of these rounds at the practice range, and move on to either the Aero tip or a sabot of some kind next year for hunting. Just a handful more days left of deer hunting, hope everyones enjoying the late season as much as I am.. Duane with his deer, Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
