I really like the Leverevolution ammo in mine.

I have a SBL. Quality on the new ones is great. Tipped over a Bison no problem this fall. Carry it mostly for bear protection but its quickly becoming one of my favorites. Seems to do well with everlution ammo. I am able to clip a grouses head off with it. Order a safety delete from beartooth mercantile if using it for bear protection as the cross bolt safety is redundant and in a location on the slab sides that it can easily be accidentally engaged. Also get a brass shell follower and if you really want to do it up right order a bearproof extractor from wild west. Then load up the bolt and action with metal polish and get your pay your favorite child 5 bucks to cycle the action a thousand times while they watch TV.

Plus its as fun as 2 monkeys to shoot. My wife even likes shooting it.

Yep I've got a 444 carry the 270 more often than not because of this
