Interesting read from 1887

Found this free online book from the public archives. Lists long range shooting events, rifles, and the leading competitors of that time from 1877. Very interesting of what they were capable of that time. Going through the book the target bulls of that time were 3' in diameter.

If you guys have time give it a look.
