Owned a couple New England short barrel blk/blk 45/70s. The Remington rounds shot great out of them. Very accurate and smooth. I used a Bushnell banner turkey fixed 4 power scope on them with the turkey plex reticle. I killed several hogs with them too. I like how much quieter the gun was compared to higher velocity guns are. At 1300 ft per second out of the barrel it was definitely more like the sound of a 410 slug. I shot one buck through the top of the back into the dorsal aorta. Only shot that I had when I stopped him verbally. He was following a doe and I was in a tree. He stopped right underneath me and behind a triple growth tree like triplets. He was down wind and I took my shot. He hobbled down the edge of the Ozark mountain and went just out of my view and was done. It was a well placed shot with a bone crushing round.
