If you want to be a serious shooter and go for optimum accuracy, the key is to start at 90 grains of loose powder and shoot 3 to 5 shot groups, increasing your powder by 5 grains between shot groups. Take the average group size and when you find the smallest group, that should be the one you use for your powder charge. My gun likes 115 grains of Triple 7 FFG. If you shoot too much powder, it will not get fully ignited before leaving the barrel and you are wasting it plus your accuracy will suffer. I killed 1 deer this season at 251 yards and 2 at around 275 yards with my muzzleloader and none of them took a step. PS, shoot an all lead bullet that dissipates all its energy in the critter. The copper jacketed bullets are too hard to expand and just zip right through! Good luck!!
Never underestimate the power of stupidity!
