My fav line of the movie after he shot the bad guy with a revolver, " I said I never had much use for one, didn't say I didn't know how to use one".
there was a lot of crock in quigley down under.
1) he fired repeat shots with great accuracy at long range without wiping the barrel.
with that cartridge he would not have been able to chamber round 2.
2) guys were falling before the sound of the shot reached them.
the bullets were subsonic long enough that the shot would have been heard before bullet strike.
3) the guy that loaded the ammo for him used english 450 bullets.
these were around 480ish gns, while the sharps bullets were around 550 gns.
point of impact would have been seriously affected even at closer ranges enough to clearly miss even large targets. it would have taken a lot of shooting to get new sight settings.
movie makers start new urban myths which become facts in peoples minds and are just plain wrong.
in doing such, they treat viewers with disrespect.
That should work! If they even make it that far!Bruce, are you trying to tell me that what is depicted on T.V ,may not neccessarily be fact/true.
Shame on you.
Ses, when you take that down the range don't forget to stick a plastic bucket at the 50yds mark. That way you can catch the bullets and re-shoot them
