Anyone else own a 1867 Rolling Block in 12.7x44R?

Post by TNGhost »

Just picked one up in military configuration, minus the fact it has been converted to centerfire.

Got myself some .50 Alaskan brass to cut down, Lyman50-70 dies and a Lee .510 sizer and am looking at different bullets mostly muzzleloader .50 cal. Anyone have any suggestions as to a bullet or mold? Looks like just about any bullet made for .50 muzzleloader would work???

I am figuring on using something like the Trapdoor load of 2400, perhaps some black powder.

My first Rolling Block so I am finding it quite interesting

Got pictures of the old girl.....? Love these old guns, I picked up an Egyptian RB recently and I'm considering a Swede.

i have an 1867 rolling block with egyptian markings but in 12.44 rimfire. Has crown on upper barrel band and bar extractor. EP marked receiver but no crescent. Maybe Swedish production diverted to Egypt during the maadi rebellion?
