With my Rem. 700Ml I can hit a pie plate sized target every shot at 300yds using a scope. That is with 120gr of 777 and a 300gr Dead Center sabot charged by 209's.

You can always build one off of a 700Ml like the smokeless guys do and use BP.

Re: I need a muzzle loader that can kill a deer up to 300 yards

i have had the mk knight then got the encores after, i have the encore in a standard and a prohunter and in the 45 and the 50 i have shot ALOT of ML and been shooting over 25 years and i have never shot a ML that stands in the same ring as the encore and have taken many of bets with both my 45 and 50. if take the time and find the right load i can stack 4 out of 5 shots in the bottom of a beer can at 200. and that is with both the 50 and 45. i took a doe at 278 yards and a buck at 203 yards this year and neither went more then 40 yards. i have stretched the 50 out to a 424 yard shot but only because i was comfortable with the gun and had been shooting at that range for awhile on paper.
just like any riffle it depends on the shooter and the time spent on working up a load that the gun likes..... so far out of the group of 5 of us with the encore50 all shoot the best with 150 grs of trip7 and a 250gr sst-ml.

some advise to those that seem able to get the encore to shoot try that load
