Longest Round Ball shot?

On the other thread, the topic got into ft lbs of energy and such.

Whats the longest shot you've taken big game at and what was your load?

140 yards on a cow elk, 223gr home cast round ball, .018 patch, .530" round ball and 80gr Pyrodex RS. Single shit to the lungs put her down within 60 yards.

My second longest shot was 40 yards but tricky as it was a head shot with a Traditions Kentucky .50cal Flintlock with 110gr goex 3f, .015" patch and .490" speer round ball. No tracking job as it rolled over onto him back at the crack of the shot. lol
