You need to expieriment and see what bullet weight ,brand, etc... works good for your type of rifle. Diffrent powder charges also will affect the way a paticular bullet shoots as well. There are many discussions about this in this forum, spend some time and look back through some of the old posts here. Lots of good info! Good luck!

i use hornady in my tc it works really good but all guns are different so you will have to experiment with different bullets and loads to see what works best

when you're talking 260gr and up if you hit it its going to fold up. round ball maxi hunter are just lead and will do a number on a critter.

So,how far are you wanting to shoot your long range hunter?The name of your gun may be a little misleading.How far do you feel comfortable shooting?Muzzleloaders along with centerfires don't have a forever range.I think your longest shot should depends on you and how comfortable you are with taking the shot.
