howdy,

a friend of mine just bought himself a sharps rifle in 45/120. he is planning to bother the wild pigs with it. i was a bit surprised because the rilfe and the caliber seemed like a uncommon hunter's choice to me. does anybody use the same combination or uses a sharps rifle in other cals?

I've got two Sharps - one in 45/70 and one in 40/65. The 45/70 is a hunting piece and the 40/65 is for target work. Both are excellent for their intended purposes. But the single shot that really hits them hard is a Remington rolling block in 50/70. Quite the short to medium range killer. Noticeably better then the 45/70 in terms of sheer whomp.
