Great post !!!
Does anyone know when the creedmoor matches started and any info on them.

They were 2000 yards and I think the Brits started them using the 303.

Very interesting.

Re: 2000 yrds! Thats old news!

Found this pic. It doesn't have the optics, but may be the basic rifle. (devils advocate) Don't believe it! There is no way that a muzzle loading rifle can be accurate enough to hit a target the size of a train car. If new ammo isn't capable there is no way that, that makes any sense. Just kidding, thanks for sharing. I really enjoy muzzle loading rifles. I think they are a lot of fun.

Put it into JBM with a muzzle velocity of 1473 ft/s, caliber of 0.451, bullet BC of .443, 700gr, and elevation of 5.3 deg.

Speed at 200 yards was around 660fps...640ft/lb of energy and it takes a little over 7 seconds to travel...

Plausible...sounds fun.
