Question New to muzzleloading

I built a traditions muzzleloader out of a kit last year and i didn't have a chance to use it that season due to work. I've sighted it in, and shot it at 50 yards and i want to make a serious effort to take it out this season and get a deer with it, but i'm not familiar with how much force black powder produces. I figured 100 grains of powder with a .490 dia 50 caliber round ball would work but i'm worried it may not be enough to go clean through a deer and i was wondering if anyone would have a answer for me I've searched countless hours and no luck, it's a traditions Kentucky rifle with the 1:66 rifling, i try to be as humane as i can when it comes to hunting and i would greatly appreciate the answers.
