Best long range muzzy???

Ok guys what high end guns are there out there? I nnow theres the badbull but is there anything close to that in performance that isnt 4grand? I used to shoot a knight .52 LRH and shot the 350g. knight bullets in front of 89g. weighed of blackhorn 209. It shot lights out and the trajectory worked perfectly out to 300yds with the ballistic plex in the Burris Euro diamond scope it had but that gun has since been stolen leaving me hunting this year with my old CVA Optima Pro. Ive shot a ton of deer at the 2-300yd mark with the knight but Im not very confident at all with the CVA so Im looking for options for a new gun for next season. I would get a new night but they dont offer the LRH anymore and I shoot left handed and all I can find online is right handed thumbhole stocks.
So Im trying to decide what other options I have and if the badbull really is worth that kinda coin... I love laying out in the middle of picked bean and corn fieldsin the wide open and taking long shots so Im wanting a gun that I can comfortably shoot 250-300+ yds and still have more than enough energy to get the job done... meaning I dont want that to be at the end of the guns effective range, because under the right conditions Id like to stretch my shots out further and not have to worry.
Soo shoot away guys let me know what options I have and what your experiences with those particular guns have been.Im looking for top notch accuracy and as much energy as possible as the setup might be used for bigger game and or longer shots in the future... thanks in advance for any input.

Go to frontiermuzzleloading.com best website for muzzleloaders. Not sure why you need to spend 4k for a muzzleloader. My Accura shoots out to 300 easily. Bergera barrel and thumb hole stock for left handed. All stock features.

Knight guy here, not sure on the left hand options. Why not try to replace the one that was stolen?

TOP OF THE LINE WITHOUT QUESTION........ Muzzleloader - Long Range Muzzleloader - Custom Muzzleloader: Ultimate Firearms

I know a number of shooters with these and you won't find a better quality built, accurate long range muzzleloader on the market. This rifle DOES NOT shoot smokeless powder. If you're looking for a true long range muzzleloader, one that will be your last, the Ultimate is the way to go.

I would look at a 45 cal conversion on a Rem700 ML conversion.
Arrowhead Sports out of Cedar Rapids can set you up.
I am hitting 1 MOA or less out to 500 yards with mine.
Shooting a 310 gr bullet with a BC of .430 at 2600 fps

Because its a discontinued model and all I can find used or new/old stock is right handed thumbhole stocks which wont work since I shoot left handed. I dont need aleft hand specific gun, I would actually rather it be a straight stock without a thumbhole or left hand options.

Will the Accura shoot the blackhorn 209 or does the breechplug cause hang/misfires???
