My new trio
      #315146 - 10/04/18 07:47 AM

Added a few new rollers to the family over the last month. All are from the 1870 era, and from Sweden.

Far left is a 1867 Carl Gustav chambered in 8x58Rd. Middle is a 1868 Remington, Far right is a 1870 Husquvarna, middle and far right
are both chambered 12,7x44R. Now I have something
to play with on the weekends.
Am currently working on loads, cast bullet sizing.






Some cut down 50 Alaskan for the brass.

Nice! I shoot my 8x58r a lot. My bore is large at .326. The Lee 8mm-Kar is perfect sized to .327.

Nice -

btw

What's the groove diameter in inches, on the 12.7x44R? Anyone know? I have read that it is the Euro version of the .50/70, which has a nominal ctg. length of 1.75", but early ones, like my 1867/68 Sharps runs 1.9".

Daryl, I had a 12.7x44r many years ago that had a groove diameter of .504. Don't know if that is typical or not.

TKS guys.
The .50/70 was supposed to be .510" seems to me, however mine is .514".
.510" would be easier to match bullets to.
