Low Pressure or High Velocity
Low Pressure or High Velocity-Which cartridge will give the best results in a Model 1886, .50-110-300 caliber Winchester-the low pressure smokeless or the high velocity, when used for hunting moose at from 50 to 150 yards? Can one do as accurate shooting with this gun and these cartridges at 50 yards, as can be done with a smaller caliber, such as a .30-30?
I think the low pressure cartridge will give best results, being more accurate, though none of these cartridges are as accurate, though none of these cartridges are as accurate shooting as the .30-30. The Remington Arms U.M.C. Co., give the accurate range of the black powder cartridge at 300 to 500 yards, and the H.V. cartridge at only 100 yards. Even the low pressure smokeless or the black powder cartridge has more power than necessary, and as the rifle is heavy I would not advise you to buy one, but if you like the Model 1896 rifle, you will find the .l33 a very nice arm, more modern than the .50 calibers, and more desirable all around. Of course, you did not ask for this advice. The caliber has nothing whatever to do with the accuracy; it is the proportions of charge of powder and weight of bullet, the shape and fit of bullet, etc.
