Extreme penetrator .45-70 rounds at work (VIDEO)

The nearly 150-year-old .45-70 Government has always been a prestigiously powerful round, but Matt and the Demolition Ranch crew test an updated load that goes even deeper.

Using a Henry all-weather lever gun, the ranchers use some standard loads for comparison before switching over to an Underwood Ammo 305-grain Lehigh Defense Xtreme Penetrator that specs out to 2350 fps, generating a massive 3,740 ft./lbs of energy.

And did we mention the XP bullet is solid brass with a blunt nose designed to keep on punching like a boxer that doesn’t take a fall?

Oh yeah.
