50 to 80 grains is a big difference but given the state of medicine any ball in the guts was potentially fatal.

Was reading a book on the battle of Cedar Mountain yesterday. One guy was basically disembowled by a cannon they stuffed his guts back in, sewed him up with sewing thread, and he lived another 40 years. Another was shot clean through the muscle of the lower leg, didn't hit anything like bone or an artery, in and aout and didn't bleed excessivey, and he died two minutes later. So sometimes you never can tell how the body will react.

What I do know is I like my 36 pockets. With the Kaido bullet and a full chamber of T-7 they just seem to hit hard

 ;D  Had to go with the 44. Mainly because all mine are 44's right now. But the 51 navy in 36 is one of the best handling sixguns ever built. Had a couple about 25 years ago. Was going to get a london 51 last one i bought but Walker fever took over. lol

...Walker fever took over.

Just finished resetting all my teeth fillings after a day of shooting my Walker!  What a literal BLAST!
