Default Muzzleloader Energy

When I use 80 grains of 2F in a 24 inch barrel the roundball passes through 3/8 particle board at 50 yards.I'm trying to determine the limit in terms of energy to kill a deer with this flintlock.A 1 in 66 twist limits me to roundballs.It will not stabilize conicals or PA Ballets.
