Power belt safari

Just uncover these from my garage. The price list is dated 2004. Add inflation to the equation, and these would be about 10$ per projectile!

200 dollars for a pack of twenty?  I don't think inflation has reached that level yet.  If they've gone up in price in 14 years, surely they're not over two dollars per pop.  Anyway, it'd be a ton of money for plinking ammo, but when hunting big game the cost of your ammunition is not a valid concern.  It's what works best that you want.

The bower belts seem to be fairly popular among the in-line/209 primed ML hunters, but I haven't tried them.

If you look at the price list in the picture (price just above top of bubblepack), they were $85 for a 15 pack fourteen years ago. These are no longer made, that should boost the value. Regardless, I just posted it to show a ridiculous price for a projectile. Even $85 in today's market for 15 BP projectiles would be pricy. I do remember buying these and a few other packs of Powerbelts of mixed weights at a yard sale for $5 per pack. Anyone wanting to face a Cape Buffalo with a .50 muzzleloader? One shot before you feel like you been hit by an eight lug diesel truck.

When it comes to Cape Buffalos refer to Craig Boddington  for advice as he is recognized as a Master Buffalo hunter as was the late Harry Selby; both these men use a 416 Right or equivalent.
Please forgive the off topic reply.
