I checked some charts,heres what I came up with.The .50 caliber with a 175 grain round ball in front of 70 grains of 2f has a muzzle velocity of 1700 fps.The factory 170 grain 30-30 has a muzzle velocity of 2200 fps.With the 24 inch barrel my velocity may be even lower.This confirms my decision to keep shots to less than 75 yds.My longest kill shot with the 30-30 was 150 yds.
