Not hunted to much with round balls & my tc new englander 54 cal. It hangs over the fireplace most days. Longest shot ever took with it on game would be about 50 yards. Took a few deer within this range. Would not press it much more then that. With this load

Powder: Goex 2f
Charge: 80 grains
Projectile: Hornady .530 roundball pillow tick patch, moose milk lube
Distance: 50 yards

Changed my avatar its a old pic not bad for a lead ball.
