I'm going to Colorado this fall on a early MZ elk hunt. Colorado says the powerbelt bullets are legal. I have a .50 cal TC encore. Any suggestions on bullets/combo's to try this spring/summer?

I would go with the powerbelts, they are awsome. 150 grains of powder pushing that bullet should have no problem on an elk. I use powerbelts on deer every year. except I shoot 100 grains of powder. I killed my biggest buck ever this year, at 125 yards with ease. good luck.

i would get T/C super glide sabots with three fifty grain pellets. super glides load as easy as powerbelts and shoot better they are about 17 bucks for 15 about like powerbelts. they sell them at walmart they are yellow

I could be wrong, but I think it is stated earlier that Colorado PROHIBITS the use of saboted bullets.  Hence, the need to use a bullet such as a Powerbelt.

How about a Maxi-ball or Maxi-hunter? They are heavy.

I don't think you can use Pellets or a scope.

Matter of fact I know you can't.

Correct, saboted bullets are illegal as well as pellets and scope .Looking for specific bullet options and powder charges to try this spring.

Have a buddy who hunts m/l Colorado every year he gets drawn.  Last year I sighted in his Encore for him.  Used the following recipe for elk with very good accuracy;
300 gr Powerbelts 
120 gr loose Triple 7
3" high @ 75 yds
3.5" high @ 100 yds
3" low @ 150 yds
