Now that said I recall reading an account of a rather sneaky sharpshooter (whether in Berdan's I don't know) who in an effort to find out where a Rebal sharpshooter was who had been given some irritating harassing fire rigged up a string w/ a button cut from his coat so that w/ a twitch of the string he could catch the light(can only be a brass button). The irony is they drove off the reb irritant w/ cannon, not rifle, fire! I think that speaks of the ranges involved either that or a serious case of one upmanship.
