    You are correct. And if you go with a stout load and a 300gr bullet, you will take it beyond what the .44 can typically deliver. A poor man's .45-70, if you will.

    I already have a .45-70, so I don't need to go that big with the Colt. But a 250gr bullet at 1700 fps is more than adequate deer medicine for the woods where I'm hunting. And it is surprisingly easy to shoot in that rifle. It feels about like shooting an AR-15 or something like that.
