Of course a muzzleloader can travel a mile. They have been used in competition at 1,000 yards or more for 150 years at least.

Here's a quote from the article that i posted a link to in my previous post:

"The forensic scientists generally agree that any projectile from BBS on up needs in the area of 300 fps to inflict a fatal wound. The .50 caliber Sharps bullets which started at 35 to 45 degree angles were coming almost straight down o~it of the sky, but they were still traveling at 350to 400 fps. In other words they were still deadly even at 3,500 yards!"
