Personally I'm zero at 100. However I'll probably never have a situation over 150 anywhere. 99% around 80 yards or less.

If you are in the 2200-2400fps arena, then I would zero at 170. That is 1" high at 50, 3.5" high at 120 and 3.5" in low at 200.
That's a 7" point blank range out to 200 yards.

Another option is if you have a rifle scope that has multi reticles for 200 zero, 300, 400, 500. With that scope, you can zero at 100 and use the second reticle for 200 because a 30-06 zeroed at 200 has approx the same drop at 300 as your muzzleloader does at 200.

I like the first option better because I don't have to think about hold overs or choose which reticle to use. Just aim center mass and squeeze ...

Clay,

I would personally go ahead and buy 4198 in either H or IMR. That powder should work well in the savage and the apex. Kill 2 birds with one stone \:\)
