Yes it is a DR a 1905 Gibbs 450 NE 28" barrels...
Not quite sure what combo you are referring to, but it shoots pretty much to the same POI with the 75% loads as it does with my full power loads , the 75% loads shoot not as tight of a group but more than acceptable. I have a load that I got from Champlin Arms that chrony's at 1900 fps with a 480 gr Woodleighs that also shoots very well.. My Trail Boss loads which I've shot with 350gr RN, 405 gr cast and various 480 jacketed bullets shoots a few inches low. I shoot these rounds before and after a shooting session, with no recoil these rounds re-establish good shooting technique and carry forward good muscle memory for the next shooting session. With some tweeking and perhaps using the 100 or 200yrd leaf sights they may shoot close enough to POA to POI that they would be a good deer load probably eat right up to the hole.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
