Shiloh Sporter #3, 30" octagon, caliber .45-70 with Montana Vintage Arms 28" Malcolm style scope, reticle is a no-center mil-dot.
My 45-90 Sharps is harder kicking than this one, and Saturday before last I fired 75 rounds at ranges from 200 to 600 yards. Those big hunks of lead cause a lot of recoil, roughly twice that of a 30-06. The Shooter's Friend pads are on all my centerfire Sharps rifles.SubGunFan said:Mighty BIG recoil pad on that BEAUTIFUL Sharp rifle. I am guessing you plan to shoot MANY 500+gr higher velocity bullets from it......
It's a "no center" mil-dot. Thus, it has crosshairs with two, one-MOA dots on either side and below. That allows quick, repeatable rise or left-right correction.jbpmidas said:How does it do at those ranges? What does the reticle look like in that scope?
