I'm not sure how he expected to get that 1800 FPS with a 500 gr bullet in a 45/70 and black powder. When I shot BPCR at Ridgeway back in the 1990s I used a drop tube and compressed load of 3F and was only getting 1160 FPS with a 525gr round nosed bullet. Had a Shilo Sharps and was getting 6in. groups at 600 yds. with a vernier sight. It kicked like a mule in prone position even with a shoulder pad off cross sticks.
