    A buddy of mine has a martini-henry and is down to his last 5 rounds. Seems that ammo is expensive so he only shoots it on his birthday. He called his only source at Old Western Scrounger and found that they were out and didn't expect to make any more. Anybody have an idea where there are other sources? Appreciate any help or leads.
    Thanks

    The current range of turned brass cases we have available are:
    Martini Henry oversize for loose rifles
    Martini Henry standard size for rifles that are still tight
    No2 Musket

    Price - R95.00 for a pack of 5 post included.

    USA price - $16.88 and for Europe - 15.88 Euro.

    We recommend that you take the oversize cases and if they do not work, we will gladly exchange them for standard cases. You pay postage to us, we pay postage back to you.

    Note the part in Colt's message where it says that OWS is out of the ammo... :D


    He can easily load his own, but the initial investment in dies is, IIRC, pretty damned salty.

    What flavour? .577-450, .303 Brit? What? Then try http://www.ellwoodepps.com
    Your definitely into a reloading thing mind you. If he hasn't been keeping the brass you should lock him up in the basement.

    Were M-Hs made in .577?

    Gun-fucious,

    The rifle you linked to is NOT chambered for .577.

    It's chambered for the .577-.450, which is the .577 shell necked down to accept the .45-cal. bullet.

    You gents are great!

    Many, many, thanks. The great thing about it is he buys the ammo and I get to shoot it(well, some anyway).
    thanks for the effort.
