creating C&B, 200m "reach", black powder

within a year or so. Both an innovative bullet and a "ladder" rear peep sight will be necessary. The gun will be usable with smokeless, tho, making it have all the reach of a 308. While it will be only a single shot, it will be Fed Exable to any one, so felons can own it, legally. .45 caliber for the black powder model, .30 cal for the smokeless variant.

200m, as expressed in the title of this thread is not "all the reach" a .308 has.
I am curious on the rest, as there are sharps that are quite capable to 200m - so what does this offer that is new?
