A 50 caliber muzzleloader can shoot quite far, depending on the manufacturer and model. In general, these weapons can accurately shoot at targets up to and beyond 500 yards. Additionally, the trajectory will also play a role in how far the bullet travels; a flatter shooting weapon will be able to hit targets at a greater distance than one with more drop. All things considered, a 50-caliber muzzleloader is a very powerful weapon that can be used for hunting or target practice at long range.

Of course, beyond simple accuracy, there are other factors to consider when it comes to how far a 50-caliber muzzleloader can shoot effectively. For example, wind conditions can have a big impact on shot precision at long range, as can elevation changes. Nonetheless, with proper planning and consideration of all potential variables, a skilled shooter should be able to confidently take the game at pretty significant distances with a 50 caliber muzzleloader.

It depends on several factors, such as the type of gun, the ammunition, and the shooting conditions. Generally speaking, though, a 50 caliber muzzleloader can shoot accurately up to around 300 yards. In some cases, it may be possible to extend that range somewhat with careful aiming and good wind determination, but 300 yards is usually considered the outer limit for accurate shooting with this type of weapon.

A 50 caliber muzzleloader can shoot up to 500 yards, but the effective range is only about 200 yards. beyond that, the bullet will start to drop significantly and will not have enough energy to penetrate deeply enough to be truly effective. Muzzleloaders are also relatively inaccurate at long range, so it is not advisable to try and shoot at targets that are further away than your maximum effective range.

A 50 caliber muzzleloader can shoot accurately at targets up to 500 yards away. Beyond that, the bullet drops off significantly and accuracy suffers. However, with the careful aim and a good understanding of ballistics, a skilled marksman could conceivably hit targets at much greater distances. In general, though, for most practical purposes, a 50 caliber muzzleloader is accurate up to about 500 yards.
