    @Scout I might buy the 375 2 1/2 double in the Wellington antique arms auction and not need to build my own

    I'm still looking to buy 577 snider dies and any molds suitable

    Will borrow dies to form cases and get started on making the chamber reamer

    I have two donor actions to build on
    And some magtech 24 gauge brass

    Barrels will be
    Bore .578
    Groove .590
    Twist from 1:25 to 1:48 because it is a variable twist button

    I now have a Ballistic Edge automatic annealer to do the magtech brass before sizing it down
    And now need to make a special case filling pilot to use to trim to length on the lathe as too big for RCBS case trimmer

    So project is slowly moving forward

    Progress update

    I have a third potential donor action in a Swedish Military rolling block conversion to 16 gauge shotgun that would also be ideal for a brand new 577 Vulcan barrel
    Nose of hammer is modified for 16 gauge case so should easily take the 577 2"

    Also both Magtech 24 gauge and Bertram 577 Snider brass are both still viable options and available

    Just want to try and find a 577 Snider chamber reamer now and that's the last piece of the puzzle
    So if anyone knows of one available to loan or buy PM me
