That's a long way for a ML. I'd practice ALOT at that range. The Omega is a great ML. Top is off with good glass and hit the woods.

Savage. It is beyond a 200 yard gun.

200 yards is a long shot with a smoke pole, good luck

My dad owns a thompson center omega. If you want a muzzleloader that will shoot that far i think the omega would be a great choice. I personally wouldn't feel comfortable shooting a MZ that far. He shoots 150 grains of pyrodex 777 pellets with a powerbelt 295 grain bullet and has it topped of with a leupold scope. Can hit milk jug consistently at 200 yards. Hope this helps.

My Omega is good at that range but Im not sure I am! Dont get hung up on yardage just to say you shot something from 200 yards with a ML or a 70-yard bow shot. You can do that on the range but unless your skills are as good as your gun, you run the risk of maiming without killing.
