    I was watching (Wild West Tech) on the boob-tube and the topic was "Hunting" As they got pass the old flinters and round balls they came to the Sharps Buffalo gun. a group of hunters in Texas was pinned down by Indians (Native Americans for the politically correct) A fella dropped an Indian off his horse at 1560 yards. It was verified and measured. The rifle was a 50/90 sharps with a tang peep sight..I couldn`t make that shot with any WIZZ-BANG magnum and a 20 power scope on a bench...Those old timers were good...real good. Anyhow that was the longest recorded shot in the old west
