    There is the 375/06 as another one to add to your list. I'm seriously contemplating doing the 37 rimmed which is nothing more than just a 303 British case and necking it up to take 375 bullets. No other changes needed. There is a whole load of posts...

    Funny thing, never really thought about either the Spencer or even the Peabody as a lever gun.Mine is in 56-50 and bought it with the thought of converting it to centerfire. Ten years later still a rimfire. Frank

    You can easily cut that with pure lead to 50-50 at least to extend it but with the high antimony and tin could drop that to maybe 25% of steriotype and the rest pure lead. Have any idea of how many pounds you are looking to get?. Frank

    I wish Henry would make a small caliber like 25-20 or 32-20 with a slightly faster twist than the old 1x20. Probably be a good seller and cheaper than an old 92 winnie. Otherwise I'm going to send out my low wall to have the barrel relined with a...

    Maybe a barrel band off one of the Greener 14 guage shotguns?, mid barrel is maybe what you need and could be made smaller if needed. Try gun parts for one. About the only thing I could think of. Frank
