    Thanks for that offer. I`m after some for reloading and I`m not sure about reloading berdan primed cases.

    My friend got gunworks I think to make him some ammo so they could be worth a try for brass?

    there's brass around but you gotta search for it a gun shop can order burturm brass but it will set you back about $100 per 20 mind you black powder brass lasts for ages if you look after it

    Can you describe the fire form process as the front of the case is necked down to a Snider slightly. Fireforming to open it out I can understand.

    watch that mate explains it all 1st sizeing would only roughly size (just good enough to fit in the gun) then the 1st round would fireform the brass

    oh by the way gunworks have both 24ga brass (all be it very steep comparison to importing your own) and 577 snider dies listed on trademe

    Bertram brass is available from magnum imports, just bought some for the martini henry, not cheap but if it lasts as long as my SPANZ cases have the grandkids will still be using them.

    I will have a look at my collection of ammo, I might be able to supply you a mould in 577 it is a hollow based minnie bullet mould by Lyman. Have brass as well but need time to haul it out. I sold my Snider to put funds towards my Double Rifle. PM me
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    That would be great Maca. Track of the wolf have snider cases but will not export, Brownells have 24ga brass shells but no export from them either. Still can`t find a supplier for the plastic 24ga shotshell cases.
