While that type of muzzleloader sounds good on paper a look at the numbers gives a better picture. If I remember right it shoots a 300gr SST/SW style bullet at 2400fps. Here is a chart for that. Note that with this 6" PBR sight in (under 250 yards)it still is almost 8 feet down at 500 yards.

Name: 45 Cal, Hornady PSP, 300 grn
Ballistic Coeff: 0.250
Bullet Weight: 300
Velocity: 2400
Target Distance: 193
Scope Height: 1.500
Temperature: 70
Altitude: 500

It may be able to shoot 500 yards in the right hands but it will not make a 500 yard shooter out just anyone.
Your right it is a MPBR 200 yard gun. Chap Gleason

Carpmaster,I think that a 30-378 is in about the same catagory as 200gr Pyrodex is for me , going that far from the peak efficincy is sort of silly. Lee
