    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 dont even shoot as far as you zero at with my ML. lol
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    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?
