Muzzleloader bullets are measured in grains, or the weight of the bullets. The larger the grain, the greater the force it will exert on impact. This is true in a sense.  However, the larger the grain, the heavier the bullet is, which means slower speed and reduced distances. Choosing the right weight of bullet is based on what kind of game you are hunting, and at what distances you will be shooting.

A muzzleloader is a rifled firearm that has the projectile loaded into the muzzle or forward open end of the gun barrel.

The muzzleloader is distinct from modern rifles, which are typically breech-loading firearms. Muzzleloaders are also referred to as black powder rifles, since they generally use black powder in contrast to the smokeless powders used in regular gun ammunition.
