I have been thinking of getting a Coonan for some time. How well does it function, is it reliable
mine does pretty well. out side of cci shot shells it feeds well. I did load some subsonic 230 grain bowling pin bullets for it that it did not feed well untill i sped them up a little bit.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 21 of my guns are 45/70 govt 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
