80. Well, the dent wasn't necessarily caused by the gun.
That is an assumption that may or may not be true.

The 760 Gamemaster was (and is) available in a variety of calibers, most often .30-06. Any of them could kill a man from 200 years away, except maybe the 0.223 Rem. which would still be accurate and deadly to 100 yards. So saying it is not especially powerful is not accurate. Many hunters simply don't like Semi-autos or bolt-actions. Since lever guns only can use blunt, short-range ammunition, the only other alternative is the 760 pump-action.

What if the rifle was sighted-in on a hard surface? That error would be built into the alignment. What would explain not only the dent, but the apparent inaccuracy when test-fired.
