Anyone know where I can buy some Federal BORLOCK 50cal. 270gr. copper muzzle loader bullets? I have been searching the internet and local shops and can't find any. They shoot well and are easy to load for my wife. I got 15 to try in her gun and she loves them. Any help would be appreciated.

That company's shipping page says "We do not ship to the USA or International. No exceptions" in all bold letters. Road trip?


Gotta live up to the nickname...

Loaded for bear used to mean two patched round balls and about 120 grains of black powder.

Yes if you push them tight on the powder and tight on each other

Shoot some paper. Mine will hit pretty close together at 50 yards. I dont need to shoot high. I read about it I think in fur fish and game years ago. Never shot anything that way. No clue how effective it really is. I have a 50 cal with 1 in 60 twist. Should have said that I guess when I gave the powder charge

Had a buddy that did the same thing. When put on paper both shoots would be within 8 inches at 40 yards but always in different spots. Anything farther out would be lucky to stay on the paper. He shot 150 grains with a 54 cal. Can't remember the twist or type of gun

Back in August a friend of mine found two packs in stock at the local Fleet Farm store anf I had him buy both for me. I know of someone else who found them at the Fleet Farm down in the twin cities, so if you have a fleet farm check in store. I killed my first elk with them in Sept out in CO and they performed well, though at 21 yds broadside most firearms and half the slingshots out there mightíve gotten the job done. lol. Good luck! Happy Trapping! ScottW

Found them on their website except for some reason they are available in store only.
