    Thumbs up I was there in the late 90's....

    During a PD trip, to the Texas high plains, we made a slight detour to Adobe Walls.

    Interesting place, although a bit stark. You do get a real grasp of the terrain and distances involved.

    There's a monument......and I've some old pictures, somewhere, I took before leaving.

    Sharps 50/90

    Billy Dixon used a Sharps 50/90 .....this is my Sharps 50/90 and I hope to shoot it out to 1000 yards someday and hunt a Bison with it. It shoot a 500 grain cast bullet very well at 100 yards!

    Beautiful! Precision Shooting Magazine ran an article on the recreation of Billy Dixon's famous shot. Well worth the read if you can source the article. -Al

    For those interested, probably the best book ever written about the elimination of the buffalo is “ The Great Buffalo Hunt” by Wayne Gard, 1951. Long out of print but usually easy to get in paperback.
    For some time I shot a C Sharps 45-100-550, shot 1F under a 500 grain Patched slug……lotsa smoke.
    Nice rig Todd.

    I have a copy of the autobiography of Billy Dixon. What is really surprising is how little space the Billy Dixon shot with his Sharps takes up in the book. About a paragraph is all.
