Default Old Caliber Ballistics

Here's one for you ballistics experts.I have taken 16 deer with a 30-30 using 170 grain bullets and 3031 powder (basic factory load).I now have a 50 caliber flintlock with a 24 inch barrel.My best accuracy is with a roundball weighing I believe 170 grains and 70 grains of 2f powder.I would like to know if the flintlock equals the 30-30 in the energy department.
