    That shoot self contained metallic cartridges. They sure do cost alot to shoot though.

    I snagged this 1871 .577 enfield snider. Already ordered some brass so I can make the case for it to shoot have dies coming and am searching for the best bullet mold that i will have to mill out to get the right size/weight/length projectile.

    Cant wait hopefully in less then 2 weeks this rifle will fire for the first time in who knows how long!

    Sweet. I shot a 1871 Springfield over the summer at 200 yds. The ammo was old so there were some hangfires. It's different and will give you the fever. Waiting for the range report.

    You should probably stop counting such things, you don’t need that sort of negativity in your life

    I might have some 24 ga. plastic shot shells I could give ya that will get ya shooting faster and cheaper. I once planned to get a snider but never did.
