1861 springfield rifle-musket accuracy?


I target shoot with this rifle alot and I think is reasonably accurate but I cannot find any info on how accurate the rifle could or should be. My accuracy is at 150 yards I can keep at least 6 shots within a 8 inch circle from firing from a bench rest and from the standing position I can keep it within a 12 inch circle. I just can't seem to find anyone or anything who knows about the accuracy of this firearm and I would like to know if I could be doing better or if the rifle is not capable of anymore accuracy due to the design. Any info would be great

If you have an older gun like the one you shoot with I would not mess with the accuracy of it because that gun would be worth a good amount of money in the future especially if it is an 1861.But most guns at that period of time are usually off an inch or 2 either to the left or right I cannot remember.
