With the powerbelts, don't try to over power them - the 348s I shoot with 90gr of 2fg 777............much more and the powercheck cups don't want to seperate from the bullet and that kills accuracy. In fact, before shooting them lube the posts that the cup fits on to help them seperate easier.

I never had any luck with those maxi-balls, but I would suggest no more than about 70 to 80gr of 777 with them - about like shooting patched balls.

I would start those 210gr sabots at 80grs too and work up in 5gr increments from there and see what works best.
