Being new to casting for my .50 cal TC Hawken (but having cast handgun boolits for many years) I am trying to decide which is best for hunting deer, elk, and pronghorn, the 370 grain Maxi-Ball or 395 grain Plains Bullet. I've tried both at the range and found accuracy is comparable. Some of my BP brethren say the additional length of the Maxi-Ball gives better ballistics, but the Plains Bullet yields a bit more energy. Same brethren say it is a Ford/Chevy comparison, shoot what you like and call it good.
Being on a budget I want to buy the best mold and therefore solicit opinions from one and all on the question:
Which is best, Maxi-Ball or Plains Bullet, and why?
Many thanks, and Merry Christmas!
