If it is indeed hand made I would say that as long as the links are welded it would probably hold 300-400 pounds. Take a link on the end and proof test it, keep adding weight until it deforms or breaks. Once you get it to deform call that your failure load, then divide that amount of weight by 1.5 and that would be your working load limit. If it deforms at 400 Lb then divided by 1.5 gives you a 266 pound working load.
The person who said "no guts no glory" is probably dead.
There is no such thing as too much ammo.....the real problem is a target deficency.
