Gander: ever shoot a 45 long range?
 
Last weekend, I heard two guy debating the better long range in-line. One guy who I know shoots a good bit of BPCR, swears that a 45 with a long bullet is much more capable of long range accuracy than a fifty. He says a fifty , with more area exposed to the front is more subject to air drag than a 45. When I saw his bullets, he was using the Ideal 457-125, which is the same 500 grain bullet that I use for 500 meter sillywets with my trapdoor. Kind of weird. But he claims accuracy is as good as a BPCR. What the guy said seems to make sense.

yeah the .45 has better BC so that would allow it to shoot flatter, plus the smaller bore will build up more pressure than the 50cal.

I have shot or owned a .45 since..... 2007? I go with the 50cal due to our law that a .50cal is minimum for elk.
