Yeah Joel I had the same happen to me, so i'm using 100 grain now.. MUCH more accurate.

hunttheworld, There's no answer to your question. I mean there's too many factors in determining an answer and even if you had all the answers the real answer is determined by you and how the muzzleloader was sighted in... was it sighted in at 100 yards or 200? does this all make sense to you? I guess what I'm trying to say is the best way to tell would be go shoot it and see for yourself what it does....

some factors involved

powder or pellets?
type of pellets?
type of powder?
type of bullet?
model traditions?
ambient temperature?
who's shooting?
clean muzzleloader?
