I am asking for accuarcy, not killing power distance.
What bullet are you shooting and what powder and charge do you use? If it's the old Renegade like I have, they seem to like a slightly lighter weight bullet or a round ball. Mine will punch a raged hole at 50 yards with 245 gr powebelt HPs over 80 grains of Shockey's Gold.
