Percussion cap muzzle loader hotting targets at 450 Meters (500 yards)

In yUK and in other international competitions we shoot percussion rifles out to ranges of 1200 yards. AND make decent scores. Take a look at long range muzzleloading rifle shooting. No optics are permitted, just elaborate tang sights. Incidentally, we shoot OPEN-sights out to 900 yards.

This is our 1200 yard range - Stickledown - at Bisley National Shooting Centre -

Cool video , thank you for sharing.

Just like with any rifle...
Take the time to learn the rifle and its preferred load and you will hit with it.
A quality muzzleloading rifle is capable of amazing accuracy at many different distances...far more than popular "knowledge" / wisdom , gives them credit for.
Whether or not the shooter of the same , is capable of that degree of accuracy is open to question....:D
