In theory, the cartridge and gun are capable of 200 yards but as always, it is the shooter's skill that determines the effective distance. To get that yardage from the equipment takes a lot of time and expense on the part of the shooter as skill is not bought, only earned. The more a gun recoils and to an extent the heavier it is also adds to the learning process. Very few are capable of wringing out even 75% of what this combo is capable of, the vast majority are far, far below that. Unless one is dedicated to spending considerable time at the range, money for range fees and ammo, along with good instruction to help with technique; the shooter will never come close to utilizing what this cartridge is capable of. Better would be to stick to realistic ranges with a 41 mag, 44 mag, heavy loaded 45 Colt, or even the 454 Casull with mid-range loadings as these are mostly less expensive and easier to control in the typical weight gun.
