    Default Colorado muzzleloader

    Going to chase elk with a Muzzleloader this year for the first time and reading through the regs I see that conical and balls are legal sabots are not. Are power belts legal? Also if anyone has any suggestions on a bullet/ powder load combination for Elk that would be great.

    Powerbelts are legal. Never hunted elk with them but antelope die pretty fast with them

    Thanks. I'm going to buy 3 or so different bullets and give them some range time. Sounds like 100 grains of powder is the ticket. I was shooting sabots with 100 grains at 100yds and was getting solid MOE. (Minute of Elk) need to find a good legal load.
