I copied this picture from another site

its rather interesting to me, I might have to make a trip out west

the path of the bullet is about 220 feet above the line of sight

it takes about 7 seconds for bullet to reach target

I had a 243 set for a 1000 yards. i didn't set it like that i had a sniper from the marines do it for me. and it could shoot every shot where you could cover it with a quarter.

i sold that gun and now i wished i didn't but it wont be long before i own a other one.

That's some nice shooting there if he's doing that open sighted.

I could get into that with my 338 Lapua for sure,,

I wish I had the means to get into shooting a Sharps like that,I have seen those pics and an article or some kind of blog,them guys know what they are doing for sure,,
I would like to see a spec sheet for the rifles and the sights,I just wonder what size front insert they are using and how high the rear sight is when set up and zeroed at a mile..
