All the muzzleloader manufacturers seem to recommend 120 gr powder as max.
Not all but at first, most did. In order to stay competative most are now rated for a max of 150. I do know that putting 150, into an old SideLock, can be dangerous. ....

Now, I see you from the Midwest and being from Iowa, I have never had the need to load beyond 100. In fact, my optimum hunting load it 95grs. I know many Midwest hunters that are routinely shooting 85grns. However, it's entirely your call. ....

The down side to pellets "the rookie stuff" is they go bad within a year, you pay up the rear end for only 25 to 50 shots depending if you use 2 or 3 pellets
So true and typical for most if not all pellets. As I said, they are not very predictable and your trust goes out the window along with the $$$. ..
All to often, I hear complaints about pellets but they keep buying them. ..

Be Safe !!!
