If this link works right it is a high res photo I just took of a very old Sharps Poster of all the Cartridges they made. It is to scale so you can blow it up and print it to original image size 17" X 23" on 18" X 24" paper and the cartridges will be actual size. If you have a resolution problem I will redo the photo in a higher resolution.Thanks again to all of you who have helped me along so far. I am still waiting for some back ordered reloading supplies, including Cerrosafe metal so I can make casts of my Chambers.

Enjoy the bit of history

Hey... if nobody said it yet -  THANKS!

Just seeing the chart makes me want to see about changing my 50-70 to a 50-90.

yeah, thanks from me too! I love pics like that so you can compare sizes and all. I have a Pedersoli Sharps 45-70 with a 30" Octagonal Barrel. I wish I had've gotten a "Big Fifty". I would trade mine for either a 50-90 or a 50-100.
Later,
