When i buy this rifle without scope i see no big advantage for this rifle compare with .45-70 or .340. But i see one big disadvantage - long range shoot is near impossible.
I have the .340 and the .45-70 too. I agree it's a little challenging to kill an animal with the .405 in long range shots.
But It is doable to kill an animal in long range shots!
Just look at this 3 harvests with the .405. All fired in more than 140m.

https://www.thehunter.com/#profile/hd_a ... /587930356 (The first shot was only a body shot at 199 meter but the stag didn't run more than 100 meters and he was sitting on the ground and waiting for the second kill shot!)
IMO, this rifle is a good one but I don't like the sound of it! It doesn't feel you shoot a canon! It looks it made for medium games!
But the power is way too much and if it has scope, we shouldn't see any fleeing animal after a shot! I like the challenging to aim at animals!
