    Spent a good while today trying to make the damn shot, but finally got it done. I shot through two layers of cardboard a gallon of water and into a mattress from 75 yards and thats with 15 grains of my powder.....15 GRAINS! You gotta figure he was shooting at least 25 grains....so to answer the question yes indeed a .36 will most certainly kill you from 75 yards away!

    but let me say this 75 yards is a long way for a revolver!
