shot would be a viable shtf rifle. yeah, right, 87 gr softpoint, at 1450 fps. It doesn't even expand in flesh at that speed, and it only HAS 380 ft lbs. That's not even good performance from a 4" 9 x19 PISTOL, ferchrissakes. For LESS money than such a single shot 25-20 costs, you could have a Marlin Camp Gun, in 9mm, and have 20 rd mags, and be driving 90 gr jhp's to 1700 fps, for real expansion of the jhp and 600 ft lbs, and have 5 hits per second type of potential. Sheesh, why bother with the 25-20? It's the parent case for the .22 Hornet, which at least offers about twice the range and power of the 25-20.
