And I always wonder why one has to have a "brush" gun, a bean field gun ect… WHEN, I have one gun for EVERYTHING, I've killed deer/moose/bear in the brush, and deer/caribou/moose out over swamps and about every where else with it...
IF I'm buying a DR, I don't want to see an animal at 100 yards or 150 yards and have to say, "ooooops, wish I would have paid more and got something that would shoot accurate out to 200 yards".
After having said that, some of the oldest, biggest caliber DR's weren't regulated super well, as back then, you could get much closer to what ever you were going to shoot than most hunting today.
Much of the African big game shot back then had never even seen a human, and for sure never seen or smelled a white man.
