This year Ft. Sill will require conventional muzzleloaders for the first week of ML deer season. Bought a very nice New Englander .50 caliber a few months ago for $150. Went to sight the gun in with 370 grain Maxi-Balls and found out it was on target at 50 yards. My powder is 100 grains of Pyrodex RS. The primer is Winchester magnum #11.

Problem is my eyes are old and i have trouble finding the bead on the target: Put some orange traffic paint on the bead and it helped some. Best i could do was 2" groups at 50 yards.
