It takes my 450gr .45-70 bullet just over 2.5 seconds to connect with the steel buffalo once it leaves the muzzle. Sometimes the charcoal smoke clears in that time, sometimes it doesn't.
The bullet trajectory, when zeroed for that range, climbs over 300 inches (25 feet!) above the horizontal before it arcs back down towards the target.
And my spotter can tell me before the "clang" whether it's gonna be a hit or miss.
When he yells "hit" it still takes time for the "clang" to get back to my ears.
That's kinda neat.
