    I have shot and own several examples of both. I’ll take a #4 Mk 2 over any Swede if my life was on the line. My Swedes are beautiful and capable, but it’s the Enfield for me in this hypothetical situation.

    Imagine that hitting a large bone in a deer or similar animal at bullet velocities. It would disintegrate, losing all it's mass and ceasing to create a wound channel. Where something a bit softer would expand and stay mostly in one piece going...

    If you have a Ruger Blackhawk Convertible with the .45 ACP cylinder, 9 grains of Blue Dot with a #454424 SWC gives full charge .45 Long Colt ballistics in the ACP case and a clean burn. DO NOT use this load in an M1911 as it is a frame cracker!
