Re: Effective Range of M1884 Trapdoor Rifle

Being in the Army and as any other veteran will tell you, there is a big difference from Max EFFECTIVE range and range of any weapon system. While being hit at 3500 yards would not be pleasent, that is not the max effective range of a Trapdoor rifle. The max effective range is where the average Joe can engage targets with reasonable sucess. What the Army thought that was in the time frame of this rifle, IDK, But I am sure the senior boys here do.
