        Comments about Barnes .50-Caliber Expander MZ Bullets, 250-gr, 24-pack:

        Best bullet out there for muzzle loaders if you don't like to chase deer after you shoot them. Even without hitting bone, the Expander MZ mushrooms well. I shoot a 250 gr bullet with 110 gr Pyrodex. Have dropped many deer with this load and have never had to chase one down. One bullet = one dead deer.

        Comments about Barnes .50-Caliber Expander MZ Bullets, 250-gr, 24-pack:

        shot at 50 yards through rossi 50 cal with 777 pellets 100 gr and 777 primers. tried other brands and kept getting a flyer or just couldn't get a consistent group. I shot 3 times before any scope adjustments or cleaning. then each 3 shots I swabbed and made adjustments for a total of 12 times the last 3 was dead center with 2 touching. each group was within 1 1/2 inches of each other. they shot great tight groups. they are kinda hard to push down the barrel and pricey but worth it I think. on target they did great blew through 3/4 inch plywood and left huge holes in the mound of dirt behind it. im going to try on deer this fall I hope they do well then. im no expert so just take your time and clean in between shots and in my opinion barnes will work for and muzzleloder. wish I would have started with barnes would have saved me money and time. be safe

              I've tried many different muzzleloader bullets on deer over the years. No other bullet flattens a deer quite like these Barnes Expander MZ bullets do. Both 250 gr. or 300 gr. bullets that I've used have passed completely through the last five deer I've shot, and dropped them right in their tracks. Two of those deer were shot 200+ yards away, and both dropped right there. I'll never use anything else from now on.
