No problem with a 45. A 50 just offers a lil more energy plus better selection of bore sized projectiles, sabots, accessories etc. If i couldnt buy a 50 or 54...a 45 would be my next choice in a big game ML offering if going down.Oldtimer6304 said:Is the 209X45 enough gun? All I see in posts are 209X50's what is the problem with the .45? Thanks
You are 100% correct, it's all about shot placmentMy long rifles are .45 or smaller, a deer is just as dead with a .45 hole through both lungs as a .50.
Its all about shot placement, some think a big cal with lots of powder overcomes accuracy. Not true IMHO.
As HOGGHEAD posted, when you cast your own you have a lot of choices.
