I second the motion for the .45 Colt. I've never owned a levergun in that caliber, but I've had a couple of Blackhawks. I loaded up the 325 gr bullet to almost 1200 fps, if my memory is correct... might have been more like 1100.. either way, that was a monster load out of a handgun. It would stand that 7.5" barrel straight up, no matter how tightly I gripped it. I believe it would have shot through two hogs lengthwise, if I could have lined 'em up...
I have to believe that out of a carbine length levergun, it would be good out to at least 100 yards... more, if the accuracy was there.
I always felt that if I got to the point where I thought it was time to bury my firearms, it was actually time to pick them up..
