I'd consider 70 grains to be adequate in my rifle, but a longer barrel could do 50 or 60. Most states list a minimum powder charge for deer hunting purposes. Chronograph your loads if you can. My rifle runs a round ball over 90grs of Pyrodex up to a little over 1800fps! Lots of deer fell to roundballs before the minie came about.
