Fires a 110 grain bullet at 1800 fps. Not strong enough for a deer cartridge and I believe states dont allow it for deer. It would do fine of coyotes but rifle is probably not accurate enough for that. Combat range was supposedly up to 300 yards. I think IBM production makes it a little rare but not sure. Recoil is very light and they are fun to shoot. About 40 years ago a handloader told me that a 130 grain cast bullet was needed to work the action with lead bullets. Never owned one so this is limit of my knowledge.
