Remaining energy at 200 yds? will kill deer?
I received my monthly issue from the NRA and they pose some interesting questions. I shoot the hornady 200 grain .45 cal out of my muzzleloader.
This is measured with a cronograph at 2204 fps. Now the info i get from hornady is at 2325 fps at the muzzle the remaining energy at 200 yds is approx 1351 ft lbs? Is this enough to kill a good buck?
The load I shoot is 110 grains of Blackhorn209 but I feel I should bump it up the extra 10 grains and shoot max load for max energy with this load???
What is the consensus of opinion?
