    200 yard zero w/ muzzleloader

    Starting to get the groups I'm looking for with my smokeless muzzleloader. Antelope season is September here in Nebraska and if I draw a tag I want to be dialed in out to 600 yards. It's great to get one hole groups at 100 yards but when your shooting longer ranges it's almost a waste of time.

    Today's group eliminated two bullets for me and now it's time to figure out my yardage adjustment. I need to make an inch adjustment for a 200 yard zero but I'm extremely happy with this group.

    This is a 5 shot group @ 200 yards that has allot of promise. The 325 MH is running around 2525 fps that carries over 800 fpe to 1000 yards.

    The lower left bullet was second shot and I really don't know why it shot there bit the rest is very promising.

    I have to carry it, it's a three piece ramrod that I carry in my pack. With the McGowen barrel we've found that the ramrod causes accuracy issues.

    Question...so why a "smokeless M/L"? Does Nebraska let you use it during M/L season?
