It would be a 150 yard gun for this old boy with a traditional pistol scope 😉 love the 45/70 round in a handgun 👍

Youre really getting the velocity out of it that's for sure 1970 with a 300gr bullet would stomp most anything.

I've done quite a bit of accuracy testing and have settled on 50 grains of Reloader 7 for 1860 FPS. Not as fast as I had hoped for, but more accurate than I expected and had to stick with that! Very happy thus far....

If you ever find your self out in the cold with your chronograph, try your pet load and let us know what you find. Mine dropped about 180fps from summer to winter temps here in Minnesota with rl7.

It very rarely freezes here and we only have a few weeks of cold (below 50) here annually, so I'm not sure if I will have the same results....
