    Muzzleloader ballistics
    With the Primitive weapons season rapidly approaching I thought some may be interested in the real ballistic capibilities of muzzleloader loads.

    You only need to know (approx) your muzzle velocity and your bullets ballistic coeficient.

    90-100 gr loads with 250 or 300 gr bullets will put you in the 1500-1700 FPS range MAX. The BC of your bullets with be around .165 -.185 for hollow points and .195 -.215 for spire points.

    This program will cet you CLOSE. There is no subsitute for actually shooting your gun at the ranges that you intend to actually hunt.
