    Enfield Accuracy

    From what I have heard the Enfield should be accurate up to 200 yards and it can kill at 1000. But I think accuracey depends more on the shooter than the musket. These black powder guns can be persnickity at times, but they all will shoot a decent group at 50 yards with a little work.
