    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.

  2. THANKS...
    Nice info to know...
