Confederate Whitworth Sniper rifle

As some will know I can of a firearms junkie.  For well over 30yrs I have shooting Civil War era Muskets, rifles and carbine. During that time I won shooting medals and team medals. What I find interesting is people believe the weapons of the Civil War era  are not accurate.  I have news for you. They are deadly, I have shot groups the size of a quarter.  Golf balls hang from a string at 50yds. 

 The video your going to watch will explain how accurate the Whitworth is.  Many a union officer died in action from a shot fire from a whitworth rifle.
