Powerbelt Shooters - Please Read

I am sending out a Limited number of these inserts for the Powerbelt Shooter that is interested. These will be sent out free of charge. Anyone who is interested will need to PM me their name and address. Names will be drawn out of the box.

The standard charge safe charge for the 295gr powerbelt Aerotip/Hollow Point was an equal charge of 80gr Pyrodex RS. You can now use Equal 100gr Pyrodex RS. I am sending these out free of charge so i can get some field test results back this season and may then i will offer them for a small fee in a bulk 100 pack.

These will also be available next month in .45cal copper series, Platinum and .50cal Platinum series.

If you need any info please feel free to ask. Thumbs up

This tip insert is perfect for the shooter who likes to buy Powerbelts in the bulk 50 pack. This tip allows the use of a heavier charge and helps control over expansion/fragmentation.

The 295gr Powerbelt With this tip installed weighs 308 grains. This bullet when shot with 100gr pyrodex RS is averaging a 3 grain weight loss when firing into damp sand at distances ranging from 20 yards to 100 yards.

Please be informed that if you use such inserts or any hollowpoint inserts in Powerbelts you do so at your own risk and responsibilty, and I assume no liability or responsibility should injury or death occur in their use.



Install the sprue cut side of the insert so its facing the outside of the bullet. The pointy end goes down into the hollow point. Simply get a thread or two into the bullet cavity and press the tip onto a hard surface ( Wood/phonebook work great) See Movie below
