It's been a while now and I've shot both rifles a lot. They are both very accurate with my loads and would not hesitate to use them as a light deer rifle at close range. The .45 colt throws a heavy bullet at just under 1200 fps with no problem. The .357 Mag is loaded to +P .38 velocities at just under 1200 also. The quality of both firearms is outstanding. The actions work very smooth and there have been zero malfunctions. If someone wants a no problem rifle I would highly recommend these to anyone.
My next caliber will be a 32-20 WCF in the same action. I have no doubt it will perform as well as these do. Accuracy is what I would expect from a rifle of this type. It will sometimes make a cluster of shots all touching at 50 yards when I do my part but I haven't sand bagged it in yet and I shoot off the top of my car with it resting on my arm. I'm sure it would put into a 1 1/2 group at 50 yards all day if you had the patience. I think that small game under 100 yrds would be no problem. I plan to call in coyotes in my area as is seems we have more of them then we have deer.
