Then it would be my guess that yes, you could take a deer down at 100yds. (You did say 100yds, right?)

i know a guy who has a Navy Arms Country Boy rifle. He bought the gun new about 1998. It is a good serviceable gun that is better made than most new inline muzzleloders today.

Yep, should be good out to 100 yards. Ya might have to play around with your load combinations a bit to find what it likes best.

After working up a load, you should have no problem killing a paper plate at 150 yards.
