Western TV show - wagon train attacked & saved by expert rifleman

What about this episode of Wagon Train (The Robert Harrison Clarke Story):





It doesn't have all the details you describe, but there's a lot that's similar. The rifle shot scene is the last five minutes or so.
Yes, this must be the scene I (mis)remembered. I'm now pretty sure I combined the wagon train attck from Winchester '73 with this episode. It was a respectable man who took the long-range shot and killed the chief after everyone thought he had missed. The scope wasn't long, but it was very distinct that I hadn't seen on an 'antique' rifle before.

I'm marking this as Answered.

Thanks for your and everyone else's help.



Could it actually be Wagon Train which ran from 57 to 65?
It looks like I should have watched each episode completey before I removed them from consideration.
