Charlie Hart shot with us in Raton, I recall that his rifle was a very nice Sharps Borchardt with double set triggers that, I think, he made himself. RIP Charlie  Undecided

I did not know that Charlie had passed, what a loss to the Texas Single Shot Rifle Assoc. and all that knew him.
I shot with Charlie back in the '80's at the TSSRA matches.
I still have a target that I shot for the Buffalo Match that Charlie loaned me his original Sharps '74 to shoot the match.  Such a fine man, such a loss.

Looking at the bottom row, 2nd from the right...
is that cartridge the 40-70-2 1/2 instead of the 40-70-2 1/4  ?

You may be right, the 40-70SS is a 2&1/2 inch straight case.  A blown out 30-40 Krag isn't quite long enough, that I have experience with.

Good catch.  Looks like it is the 2 1/2

Was not aware Charlie Hart had passed away. I have not seen him in a couple of years. Very sorry to hear that.
