43 Dutch Beaumont rifle

This is the rifle that I am making the brass for....see the Metallic Cartridge Reloading forum. It is a 43 Dutch Beaumont rifle with the Vitali magazine upgrade, making it into a bolt action repeater.

Here is the muzzle end with a repro cleaning rod made by a now-departed friend.

Top view showing the thick bolt handle. The handle actually houses the firing pin V-spring!

Len, I bought the gun probably 35 +- years ago at a household auction. I didn't know anything about it then and it sat around all this time. I saw on a forum recently where people were loading for the rifle so did some searching for info. Now I have done some (gentle) cleaning and will be loading some ammo (black powder) for it soon.
