Shiloh Business Rifle
I just picked up my Shiloh Sharps that I ordered through Bill Goodman. It is a Business Rifle in .50-90 with a 30” heavy tapered round barrel, full buckhorn, semi-fancy walnut, steel shotgun butt plate, pewter forend tip and brass escutcheons. I took some quick pics inside with bad lighting and will get some better ones tomorrow if it isn’t raining. These pics don’t do the wood justice.

Nice rifle; I waited literally, 4 years for the last one I ordered. A 40-70 straight.

What a lovely rifle. Bill Goodman sure can make Shilohs "happen" can't he? I still have a deposit on file with Shiloh. That's as far as I got on an order years ago for a Hartford in .44-77.

I keep pulling it out of the safe and wiping it down and just staring at it

So when are you going to shoot it?

Hopefully this weekend. Had to put my dad in the hospital and working weird hours. I will be glad to be retired soon so I can do important stuff like shooting

Retirement and a Sharps rifle makes a wonderful combination!

I cast some 670 gr bullets from the KAL mold and patched them last night. I will get them loaded up tonight and get to the range Wednesday, the Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise

Couldn’t go Wednesday but I am headed to the range Thursday afternoon. I was looking at the bullets and thinking how heavy they were then I looked at some loaded .45-100 rounds loaded with 585 gr bullets and realized I need to see How heavy a Bullet my KAL mood can throw and try them out. The
