Default Sighting In A Ml?

when sighting in my slug gun im thinking i was like 2 and quarter inches high at 50 yards( i think this was it) and this out me dead on at 100 yards.does a muzzle loader go by the same principal when sighting in for 100 yards.? how do you guys dial in for 100?

If possible I would try to shoot it at 100. There are so many powder and bullet variations it would be hard to guess. I think mine is very similar to what you slug gun is though it's a 100g of clean shot pushing a 300gm bullet.

what are your hunting conditions like?do you need to make 100 yard shots or is 50 the norm.Personally i would sight it in for 50 cuz that the normal shoot in our woods.if the animal is further out and i cant wait ill just hold a little higher on the spot
