muzzleloader range


Recommended Posts

Not how far do they kill, but does anyone know how far 50 cal 250 grain slug with 100 grains of powder will travel if uninterupted? I had a shot in a slug zone that I passed on cause it was a level shot(not down at the ground) and there was a road about 1/2 mile away. I still wouldn't take the shot, but it got me curious.

this is from the CVA website:

How far will my muzzleloader shoot?

Answer: A projectile fired from a muzzleloader can travel in excess of 500 yards, but the energy available in the bullet drops substantially as it travels downrange. It is up to the shooter to decide if a distance shot is an ethical shot. With today's magnum muzzleloaders, maximum ethical distances for some accomplished muzzleloader shooters can extend beyond 200 yards.
