Here is what works for me. 150gr pyrodex pellets (3 of them) under a Powerbelt 245gr Aerotip. Groups like a champ out to 200yds out of my TC. Use a winchester 209 to set it off.
I'm sure I can get better loads with loose but honestly its not worth the hassle or potentially messing up the load under pressure. I have shot loose and percussion caps but the tech exists to eliminate it and still let me have a great legal long gun for deer in Ohio.
