I'm sure this has been hit on before, but what is anyone's opinion on a good muzzleloader bullet? The last few years I have been using the Thompson Center shockwave with mixed results. I shot a couple deer with those bullets, but barely had any blood trail and got lucky enough to see them fall within eyesight. With the recent news of Thompson Center closing its doors I could no longer find the Shockwaves, so I bought the Thompson Center XPTs. On two different occasions this past season, I shot two does with the XPT bullets. Both shots on the does were about 105 yards, perfectly broadside, and know I hit them pretty well (big mule kicks). Both times there were ZERO blood at all at impact or on the trail I saw them run away one. I spent over 1.5+ hours each time walking around tiring to find blood or the deer with no luck. Any suggestions? I have heard Barnes bullets would be a good option.
