    Husqvana 12.17 X 44R Rolling Block

    Any ideas on getting this thing working?
    Have had the main spring shaped, nitrided and fitted new firing pin, ever thing in theory looks good but it just wont fire first go, slight indentation on the primer, pull back the hammer and let it go again and normal indentation in the primer and bang it works, its frustrating the hell out of me. Dont buy it if you see it going cheap!!!
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Swap to pistol primers some oldtimers springs go a bit weak, (take that last bit however you wish)

    A mate of mine has one of these. He uses Bertram brass and a lead projectile sourced locally I believe.

    PM me and I can give you his contact details. He has managed to shoot a wallaby and maybe some fallow with it

    How's the head spacing?

    Is the first strike seating the cartridge into the breech a fraction more then the follow up strike sets it off.

    Same for the primers if you have reloaded.

    Are the primers fully seated?

    Cheers

    About 3 feet from the muzzle I use Bertram brass which I've turned the rim down to seat when the breech block is closed, I'll double check primer seating, I have to wack them in on a piece of hardwood, def going to try pistol primers! Thanks

    @Maca49

    There's your problem right there.

    That old girls muzzle needs another foot or so added too it.

    It's ok to seat the primer on a flat piece of steel if you'd think that would help.

    Cheers

    Just relax and go with it.

    Haven't seen too many hardwood primer pins

    Primers generally need a pointy bit to spark them up.

    What's the worst that could happen?


    And don't forget to slip on some safety glasses

    Cheers

    No I prime a lot of my brass this way 577/450, 500 BPE, 577 snider and I haven't had a prob so far, have certainly screwed some primers doing the 45/70 using the proper tool.
