HAWG, you mentioned "Dances with Wolves" inconsistency regarding Henry rifle. I agree that when he shot that buffalo at God knows how many yards, it just dropped dead. A 214 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of about 1,000 fps isn't going to stop a charging buffalo. And remember "Lonesome Dove" when Robert Duvall flipped up the sight on his Henry and shot a guy that I expect was suppose to 200 or 300 yards away. Another great early gun movie! But again, Hollywood took some liberties.
