A Step Back in Time

This Goodwin Creedmoore rifle sight on my 45/70 is similar to one used during army tests in 1887. The gun was able to fire a black powder cartridge bullet through 4 inches of oak and 8 inches of sand behind it. The impressive fact is that this was done at a distance of one and a half miles.
