Just like it was designed to do. What a concept! When the 1911 was designed, pistol shooting was all one handed. The military continued instructing one handed 1911 shooting up through the 1960's. ...

I don't think you can go wrong with your decisions, they are all good. There is no single, perfect rifle ammo combination, despite what some may claim. For years I had a Rem. 700, in .270 caliber...
