[quote=“jean-pierre”]. . . I disagree with you about the muzzle loading guns non accuracy. They are a lot more accurate than guns using ctges.
Try to compete at 200 or 300 meters (and further) . . . jp[/quote]
I don’t want to get into a pi$$ing match about shooting because I’d rather talk about cartridges.
But, I’ll say this and then quit.
I have been competing in all shooting disciplines for more than 50 years. I do a lot of shooting at distances well beyond 200 or 300 meters. I currently shoot mostly long range Benchrest which is 600 and 1000 yards.
There are muzzle loading rifles that are very accurate, I won’t deny that. But the accuracy of the best of them cannot even come close to a tuned center-fire cartridge rifle.
Shooters are very fickle. They are loyal to no one thing or person. They want only what shoots the best. If a muzzle loader, or any kind of black powder rifle is what will win, that is what they would use. But they don’t.
