just cuz it holds 150 doesnt meen ya have to shoot 150.when i bought mine i was pumped that it was a magnum.i shoot 150 /265 boy did it kill my shoulder .I started to flinch,which is the worst habit you can pick up.i lowered down to 100/245 and i can shoot all day and put im in the 10 ring at a 100yrds..during the civil war they used a small round lead ball and no more than 80 grains and it killed people dead.
