Thanks for your feedback, what game have you shot and at what distances?

Strictly a deer hunter, 100 yds has been my longest shot went in the chest and didn't quite exit out the rear. Most shots are under 100 yds.

Default Blackpowder load

I have a .50 caliber Traditions muzzleloader. I found it at a household auction.It's the Deerhunter model.1in66 twist.It will not stabilize the conicals but is accurate with the roundballs.I use loose powder(80 grains of 2f).Still working my way up from 50 grains to find the best accuracy.

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.
