How do I sight my muzzleloader?

Some Pre-Sighting Questions

Before we get to the actual process of adjusting the sights to hit where you want, some decisions must be made.

• Where do you want it to hit?
• At what distance?
• Target shooting or hunting?
• Heavy load or light?
• What sight picture are you going to use, 6:00 o'clock hold or center hold?

These decisions must be made by each individual shooter, based upon what he needs the gun to do—be it bark a squirrel, knock down a moose, or punch holes in a paper target at close or long range.
