Powerbelt Muzzleloader Bullets & Accessories AMERICA'S #1 MUZZLELOADING BULLET
The bullet now known as the PowerBelt® was originally designed by a small group of black powder enthusiasts who set out to create the perfect projectile.
Critical to the ELR’s velocity potential is that it is .45 caliber, rather than .50 caliber. Because of the smaller bore diameter, the ELR bullets can be longer than a same-weight .50 caliber bullet would be. That length, when combined with the bullet’s aggressively tapered shape, delivers a ballistic coefficient of .333, which is superior to that of any .50 caliber muzzle loading projectile.
PowerBelt® ELR Bullets
PowerBelt® ELR Bullets were specially designed for CVA’s PARAMOUNT™ rifle, but can provide superior long-range performance in any .40, .45 or .50 caliber muzzleloader. In testing with the CVA PARAMOUNT™, using the the maximum recommended “supermagnum” charge of Blackhorn® 209 propellant, ELR bullets achieved muzzle velocities of 2740 in .40 caliber, 2560 in .45 caliber, and 2380 in .50 caliber.
PowerBelt ELR Bullets were specially designed for CVA’s PARAMOUNT rifle, but can provide superior long-range performance in any .45 caliber muzzleloader with a twist rate of 1:24 or faster. In testing with the PARAMOUNT, using the recommended “super-magnum” charge of 140 grains by-volume of Blackhorn propellant, ELR bullets achieved muzzle velocities in excess of 2200 fps.
