    So did I. Apparently, that heavy-bullet momentum really helps it "carry."

    Probably wouldn't even chip the paint at that range, but I bet you could hear the "Bong!" when it hit!

    I'm also surprised at how close the .45 would get, to 2,000 yards.

    At a terminal velocity of about 300fps, the bullet might even cause some damage!
    Raise a knot on your noggin', that's for sure.

    Darn good work by my spotter. Of course we wefe hittin a human sized target at 305 first. And the 420 with the -G-19 was not a one shot like the H&R Buffalo Classic was (45-70)

    I think this could be done. I wouldn't be able to do it, I have problems with the 50 yard shots.

    Well it all depends on how BIG the shipping container is , is it a cardboard mailing Box Or a over sea's container @ 53' by 102" Dat's A Good Question . I Don't Think I Could Do it either Way with a H.G.
