Your questions are too broad. It would take forever to give you ballistics for all the bullets available.

Are you looking for a load for certain game, or do you really need the ballistics? What game are you going to hunt and what will be the max range you'll do it at?

Check some of the bullet brand websites for ballistic info for such and such bullets. Www.blackhorn209.Com for example has a list for the most popular muzzleloader bullets.

I assume you're hunting for deer? Of the two choices i'd†pick the Thor. Just to check you can go to the Powerbelt web site and get ballistics for the AeroLite. You can go to the BH 209 site for ballistics with their powder.

As a general rule. Use 100-110gr of BH 209 and a 250gr conical or sabot for deer to 200yds. Same powder load and a 300gr for larger game like elk for the same distance. I'm not sure of the muzzleloader laws in New York. You picked two conicals, so does that mean you can't use sabots?

The Thor is always a good choice if you can use sabots or not. It is a bit more finicky getting a proper fit though.

But gonna use this mainly for deer drives ans close quarter hunting but still like a set up that can take shots up to 200 yards still

Ok, you should have said that to begin with. Any load you used in the Accura will work in the Optima. The difference in accuracy will be so small to not even matter. They'd even work in a shorter barreled Wolf.

Go ahead and use the same load and i'll bet you'll be surprised. I've seen an Accura with the barrel cut down to 20" shoot a 2" group at 300yds.

I was just curious the muzzle velocity since coming down 4 inches I
Mean I know the accuracy wonít be much different I just know velocity and knock down power will come down a bit. I usually use 77 †by weight of BH209 I shoot a harvester scorpion pt 300 grain with Craig red sabot and one of the others I use a 270 grain platinum powerbelt

Those loads will work fine in the Optima. They might be 100-150fps slower, but it will hardly be noticed.

I'm curious. Why 3 Accura LR's?

Basically Iím obsessed with them I shoot different loads out of each the accuracy is unreal I mean itís comparable to my centerfirerifles itís insane Iím strictly a muzzleloader hunter now my state went to rifle a few years back some areas are still slug/ muzzleloader areas as well . My first muzzleloader was a savage smokeless I kinda baby it now since are discontinued but since my first cva idk if Iíll ever use the savage again . Though I will say Iíd love to see a muzzleloader from them with 1:24 twist barrel
