Unlike the Winchester, which fired short-ranged pistol ammunition, the Sharps was a single-shot, full-bore rifle chambering the powerful .50-70 or .45-70 Government ammunition.
This made it highly accurate and powerful, whether for hunting large animals or ‘sniping’ human targets, as in Django Unchained (2012).
