    .45 Cal Smoothie Ga?

    Well I've never done a string of shots to see, but I finished the gun just right after our muzzleloader season an wanted to get in the woods with it so I did two shots at 33 yards 60 gr 3f. Ten thousand patch mink oil off hand an the holes were touching that was good enough for me (real good for me)

    .45 caliber smooth bore?

    Not to make things worse but I picked up an early penn .45 cal smooth bore rifle from Sittingfox couple weeks ago. I've read all Brittsmoothy post on his 45 an Just had to have one to chase bushy tails here in mtns. And like Brown Bear I've had good results with my old .410 it served me well.
