I had forgot about shotguns. But back to Muzzle loaders, Muzzle Loaders are every bit as powerful as any of the new guns on the approved list.
The powers that be were convinced that making sure legal hunters are only able to fire maybe 3 rounds a minute would keep a poacher from dropping an entire herd of deer with 30 rounds from a semi-auto rifle.
Many years ago, in Ohio, with many "IFs" I could have done just that one morning.
IF - I hadn't been on my motorcycle.
IF - I could shoot from a public roadway.
IF - I hadn't been followed closely by a car doing 30mph.
IF - I'd had something like a 308 semi-auto with a 30 round magazine.
IF - The eight point buck hadn't been charging me at the time.
Then I could have taken out an 8 point buck and his harem of 4 doe. (FYI the plural of "doe" IS "doe".)
Location BTW: Merriman Valley (north of Akron) near the bottom of the Smith Rd. hill.
A little history of that hill. Before they started putting salt spreaders on the front of salt trucks they would BACK UP
that hill. IIRC also the Bath Rd hill just north of it.
