I mean the BP 577-450 round?

Mine's a short lever 1888.....too late for Roarke's Drift but maybe that's why the bayonet and sling are in such good shape.

"Men of Harlech stop your dreaming,
Can't you see their spear points gleaming,
And their warrior's pennants streaming,
To this battlefield.

Men of Harlech on to glory,
This shall ever be your story,
Keep these fighting words before ye,
Welshmen....never yield."

There is a great big old oil painting of the Battle of Roark's Drift in the Art Gallary NSW in Sydney, Australia. It's much more impressive in person:

I loaded these in the early 1970's in CCI brass for a M-H carbine and now load in new-made brass for a friend. The case maker advises to anneal before every loading and do a minimum of resizing. I agree. Also, save your neck-wrecked cases for Snider and hodwa pistol shooters.
