That musket will be rifled. I have a similar one, and I have used 3 different mini bullets/ Different weights, different shapes. Even a 'match' type. They shot no better than the round ball. Pyrodex is actually easier and cleaner to use than BP. Use Pyrodex. Oh groups won't be good at 100...stick with 50 yards and fist sized groups are the norm. At 25 yards you can easily get cloverleafs...
