I got some Belmont as well - hoping to use it soon. I'll update when I do.

Terry if I remember correctly they were selling a couple of different projectile types. Which do you have?

Used a ton of it aerial shooting a few years back. It fair slammed the deer and pigs. Accuracy was ok for what we wanted it for.

Belmont used to load them right up and the primers were always flattened and they leaked gas around the primer pocket. They leaked so much gas they finally burned the bolt face out of the AR15.

I expect those problems will have been cured by now.
