The best I ever shot my Muzzel loader was a 5" 5 shot group @ 300yrds ,Using a 620gr cast
postnell bullet in front of 150grs of xx black powder (This load is a bear and should only be
used in a modern rifle).
The trajactory is kind of like a mortar but it does hit with authority.
I did not try beyond 300 because a 5 inch groups are my comfort zone on deer.
I did not try the BP substitutes ether but they might do better.
Also I like the sabots out to 150yrds but beyond that they were just not as accurate in
