    No need, the ATF considers the .577 to be an "antique" caliber, and not subject to the .50 size limit. There are also a handful of modern cartridges >.50 where the designers got ATF exemption letters.

    You can build a modern rifle in .577 Snider without running into ATF problems.

    As usual, check with atf.gov before building...

    HMMMM im not so sure. If thats the case why havent companys been doing it?? A .577 revolver loaded right would make the 500 S&W look small.

    Surely you jest. No belt? No long pointy bullet? No "Magnum" in its name? What customer would buy such a thing?
