I tend to agree somewhat. When I went to a smokeless ML, I got caught up in the craze of long range loads. Soon decided I wanted an easy shooting (mild recoil yet accurate) 100 yard load, as that is where I take most of my shots. I don't spend enough range time to try to take a 300+ yard shot on a deer. And I like the setting up in a spot where one isn't going to be tempted for such distances. In regards to center fire rifles, most have a multiple cartridge capacity. With the ML, you get one shot, better make it count.WTF- most of the avid participants on this sight are dead set against centerfire rifles in Iowa and then most of you build 600 yard muzzleloaders. If you need a 600 yard gun in Iowa you are a piss poor deer hunter. I think the state should go to no scopes on muzzleloaders like a few of the western states. It is after all a primitive weapon season and maybe it would eliminate some of the road hunting which I know happens with these long range guns.
