I need some help figuring out my muzzleloader. I have a TC Omega with a 3-10x Cabelas Powder Horn scope. The scope was mounted and bore sighted. I was on the paper at 50 yards after a few shots and was 2 inches high at 50 yards. I then moved the target to 100 yards and was 18 inches low? Doesnt make sense to me? I'm shooting 245gr Aerotip Powerbelts with 150gr of 777 pellets and 209 primers. Am I using the wrong amount of powder or do powerbelts drop off that quickly? I'm under the belief that my ml should shoot farther before dropping off like that? Also, when shooting. I run my .50 wire brush through my gun between each shot and also a patch. Should I be doing something else? My scope has the BDC reticle and is designed to be zeroed at a 100yds with the lines below being for 150, 200, and 250. Right now I'm having a hard time with 100yds. My L/R is fine... bullet drop is my issue. I'm relatively new to ML, but am plenty accurate with my other rifles so its not that I'm an inaccurate shot. Plus I'm shooting off a bench.

Frustrated... please help!
