Orville dropped this antelope buck at a 169 yards with his 16 pound Big 50 Sharps.

The Big 50 it's what's for death.

Isn't that one of those detachable carry handles like they have on AR-15s?

Very nice, congratulations. There aren't that many antelope killed annually with a bp cartridge rifle. Is that a MVA scope and if it is how do you like the sliding mount? I might go to a scope in the future.

Works good mounts are milled to fit in dovetails of the rifle keeping the scope low, also have multiple crosshairs which you learn their yardage so no or little messing with the elevation.

Shooting grease groove bullets in a sharps is new technology and just a passing fad.
