I think it may be because years ago (until modern technology and product advancements came into play)
A lot of hunters believed the hotter loads would produce quicker and more accurate kill shots.
That isn't the case any longer, Today, like wmi say's the load and bullet is determined more at the range through trial and error,
sometimes a lighter bullet with just 2 pellets may perform better.... It's up to you, the shooter to determine what works best for you.
2 pellets will do the job in most cases...
Some muzzleloaders can't handle 3 pellets (3 pellets = Magnum Load)
So refer to your owners manual to MAKE SURE yours can handle 3, before you try using 3 pellets.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
