Re: in order to save bullets and powder

depends on bullet weght and speed but in most cases if you are 2" high at 50 you will be pretty close to dead on at 100

This is my experience as well in sighting in three muzzle loaders this year. Dead on at 50, two to three inches low at 100 and 6-8 inches low at 150.
