According to military records the British stated that a smooth bore musket was accurate out to 50 yds after that just hitting a man sized target somewhere at 100 yds was considered lucky. A rifled flintlock was very accurate out to 100 yds and could shoot 150 with fairly good accuracy. Reports of 200 yd hits are fairly well reported.
