Personally I dont like to shoot farther than 100yds with one. Some of the new MLs will shoot accurately out to 200yds but requires much practice. Out to 150 yds can be reasonable but I cant see shooting a ML much farther.

Too many variables to say for sure. The max will be quite different depending on powder, bullet, rifle, etc...

I moved this thread to the muzzle loading page. It should get more response here.

I think it's more what distance your comfortable with. I shoot an Omega and limit myself to 100yds.

On paper I can be very accurate out to 175yds. But not comfortable enough to take a shot at a deer at that distance.
