    Default 577 Snider

    I just received one of the Snider Enfield rifles from IMA. It is from the big armory Cache they bought a few years ago in Nepal. Anyhow I bought a box of ammo to go with it & thought
    I'd show a pic for the big bore AK dreamers. Heh....Heh. This is next to .50 Beowolf, 5.45 x 39 & a 45 Colt. It's about the same length as the 5.45 x 39. But fatter. bullet is 480 grains.






    20 rounds delivered = $155.00

    LOL its over the 50 cal limit. I think a 20guage Sagia with a rifled barrel and brass shells with the bullet loaded protruded like a rifle round would be about the same. I was eyeballing a 28 guage case the other day and thinkng hmmmmm.


    looks like the gun you got is pretty nice. I wanted one of the martini,s but chickend out.

    I was so happy with the Snider Enfield that I ordered the long lever martini the next day & just got it.
    I found them at Sportsmans guide at a discount, plus a free shipping sale & their EZ four pay plan sucked me in. Heh.....Heh

    Nice!

    Have you noticed that century+ old military rifles can be addictive? <grin>

    There are several places that have Boxer-primed brass and bullet moulds for the .577 Snider. Some of the "Africa rifle" guys are still fond of it.

    The original cartridge was black powder, and some were paper patched. The .577's case comes all the way up to the nose of the bullet, so there are plenty of grease grooves and none of them are exposed, so a paper patch isn't really needed on the .577.

    Looks like a lot of guys are using Pyrodex instead of BP, since many gun stores don't want to go through the extra hassle involved in stocking BP. Of course, this would be a great excuse for you to make a ball mill to make your own BP...

    The .577 ammo I got from TEN-X . They will re-load the brass for around $50.00 per 20. I don't know if I'll even shoot it. I just like to see the vintage ammo that goes with each rifle.

    And YES I want more!! And a large classy secure living/ smoking room in which to display a large firearms collection on the walls .
    Our old cabin tent is geting crowded, Heh...Heh
