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.

Retirement and a Sharps rifle makes a wonderful combination!

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
