I saw 5 minutes of this film again the other night. 

Concerning Ramon Rojo's shooting skill, how much practice did he ever have with a Gatling gun???  Likely: none.  I mean, he shot and killed all those Mexican soldiers using the US Army's Gatling gun, killed all the Mexican soldiers, and did not even hit a single horse !!!  Maybe Leone's budget did not allow for horse carcasses/dummies.

Obviously yes.

Yesterday, I saw an old Wagon Train episode from 1961 guest starring Don Rickles ("Wagon to Fort Anderson").  Albert Salmi (first) and then Robert Forster held off about 25 Indians using a cavalry Gatling gun, and they were just as skilled as Ramon in avoiding killing or wounding ANY horses.  These guys all had pretty good aim for first time using one.
