Biggest ones I have shot were both 1895 Marlins, one in 45-70 and the other in 444. I bought a 10ga. this year. They don`t seem to be as stout when shooting steel compared to lead. I also spent 5 years in the Canadian Navy and my action station was pulling the trigger on the aft gun(3.50&quot. It sounded like a giant slide action shotgun when cycling a round.
