What are you considering long range? If you are going to shoot past 350 yards you probably should look at the smokeless powder muzzleloader. I do not own one but they would have a little advantage in my opinion.
I do have an encore pro Hunter and i do know that shooting the black horn 209 powder and using the 285gr spitfire i can hold .5 groups at 100 yards. and i also know if you weigh out this powder it is very consistent. like less then 10 ES over a 5 shot string. so with that being said 300 yards is just about dialing it up and shooting it. however my bullet has a max range of 350 yards due to velocity and expansion. it will shoot farther but lethal killing power has a max range. So if you had a combo of smokeless and using a light long range bullet like from dead center. .375 caliber. ( which is to small to hunt deer with in Indiana) you could reach out pretty far.

Do you mean the one made by Lyman. I want a long range inline muzzleloader.

Re: Ultimate Muzzleloader!

The Ultimate Muzzleloader does what it states. Unit 15 in NM is a primitive weapons only unit and we stritcly use the Ultimate with our clients. We had a female hunter this year kill her bull at 530 yards. That is the longest kill we have had so far. Before that the longest kill was around 450 yards. Our guides have killed over 20 bulls (maybe more) and this gun is amazing. There are a lot of skeptics out there, but the proof is in the pudding. They way it is built is quite unique as well.

Let me know if you have anyother questions and I'd be happy to answer them

I saw Mike Davidson from Gunwerks kill an antelope at 714 yards with one of their muzzleloaders on Long Range Pursuit last night. That's long range.
