Re: smooth bores?
I will not attempt a shot with a Muzzy rifle at more than 100 yards, and I own some of the best custom longrifles ever built. Its an ethical matter for me, and as stated, because of my poor eyesight I am not the best open sight or black powder shooter. However, I've been shooting them for a long, long time, and am priviledged to know or have known alot of the best shooters of our time. You would not find many, or any, that would profess shooting game at 120 yards with a smoothbore. If they were accurate at that range, a dozen wars would have been fought 120 yards apart, not 50. Its my humble opinion that shooting a smoothie at game that far away is " Punkin chunkin" at best. No offense meant, I just don't see shooting that distance with a smoothbore as practical or ethical.
