Many hunters trust their loads to memory, and that's fine if you're blessed with perfect recall. If not, Puppe recommends that you keep a chart to track the optimum load for your muzzleloader and how the gun shoots under varying conditions. "I jot notes on my targets, recording the load, the bullet, the date, and the weather conditions. Then I save them." This way, when the weather changes, Puppe knows exactly what adjustments to make to keep his muzzleloader right on the mark.
