    Today was a Swiss Vetterli chambered in .41 Swiss rim fire. But I was able to finish the Centerfire conversion today and shoot it.

    I've got a Swiss Vetterli in .41 Swiss Rimfire hanging above my bench. Fired it in the original .41 Swiss Rimfire blackpowder. Bought 5 rounds off a guy at a gun show about 15 years ago.
