43 Spanish Brass
« on: August 03, 2021, 07:48:51 PM »
I recently brought home a Rolling Block Carbine. When looking into the chamber I can see a defined "Step".  I'm searching for some loaded rounds to see if they chamber correctly. Perhaps I could borrow a round before I spend way too much for something that may not be correct. I could purchase a few to test if anyone could spare a couple. Suggestions. Thank you, Bruce

deja vu all over again  :)

I had one similar to yours ( yours is nicer )  belonged to a customer of my LGS.  I was asked to cast the bore to confirm what I thought was 43 Spanish
it was indeed 43 Spanish .

A big Plus to Major 2

In these cases, a chamber casting is essentail!
get some cerosafe, low melt ( literally can melt below 200 deg F)
and follow the directions available online.

It's best to measure correctly, and thus know exactly what cartridge you are chambered for ( omg look, you made me end my sentence in a proposition preposition ! )
 
If one is cheap frugal and impatient, one can actually use a very hard parrafin and get a somewhat mediocre sort of adequate result...

Because ...
There is also the .43 Egyptian, .43 ( or 11mm) Reformado, and some oddball rollingblocks from Scandinavia ....
