    Cool A Long Shot For a Muzzleloader

    Got word last night that a guy that I built a custom 45 caliber smokeless muzzleloader for 3 years ago (come January) made one helluva shot on Friday, which was the last day of muzzleloader season in VA. It was only a doe, but IMO it is a trophy, being that the shot was 826yds. To make it all the better, he had a witness/spotter with him to verify it. Last year he made a shot just over 600yds and he thought that he would have a long hard time beating that one, but beat it he did just 12 months later. He very well may have a long hard time beating 826yds though.

    1shot do you know what bullet and speed he was getting?
    From what I can see in the pic that is a good looking rifle,and the builder needs some credit also.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I know for sure that he is shooting the Pittman AccuMax ML .452 cal 300gr bullet. I think, but not sure, that he is shooting mid-sixty some grains of IMR-4198 powder.
