    Not always accurate but a good place to start when you have gun questions related to movies:

    The movie prop houses have quantities of Snider breech loaders which have been sleeved to use the common 5 in 1 movie blanks.

    The .577 Snider rounds can be loaded and improvised using Fiocchi or Magtech 24-ga. all-brass cases, cut to 2 inches and loaded with a .600" lead round ball, fiber wad column and 80 grains of 2Fg.

    Could be wrong but I think that's a clip from near the end of the movie where Quigly is making his stand against the British after shooting Marsten.
    Statistics show that criminals commit fewer crimes after they have been shot

    yes, then the camera backs out and shows the hills around the ranch lined with the Aboriginies.
    Then the british decide to leave.

    @ Indian Joe.

    That ain't right.

    I loved that show. Made me want a Sharps. I ended buying a 1863 paper cartridge Sharps & love it just the same.

    nah !!I werent there its a bit far away for me to visit on short notice like that - besides me horse was a bit lame

    I searched all the Aussie colonial uniform info I could find -- couldnt see that headgear - uniform looked like more like in India at that time - headgear similar or from the Sudan
    I wasnt thorough enough to say no for sure but it yelled loud at me from that picture - but then Tom Selleck's rig was kinda loud too eh
