Just picked up a new book today. Weapon: A Visual History of Arms and Armor from Covent Garden Books. It says the Whitworth was accurate over fifteen hundred yards. However, it was apparently four times the price of the Model 1853 Enfield so the British Army never adopted it. Wonder if the price was dropped so the Confederacy was better able to afford.

Wish the book would list accuracy ranges for all the listed firearms in it. But I was more getting it for other purposes.
