Should have figured that buffalo would make some. Wowzers at $4 a round. But makes sense if no one makes them anymore.If you are well-heeled you can buy it here:
11.7x51R Danish Ammo|Obsolete Ammo|Shooting Supplies
Or if you are equally well-heeled you can roll your own:
Bertram Brass 11.7x51 Danish Unprimed Basic Box of 20 - Graf & Sons
Reloading using Bertam Brass is the ONLY way to shoot these old guns. If us poor folks over in yUK can do it, so can you, where things are around half the price that WE pay.
I have to admit to and confess to a certain amount of annoyhoodship when the cost of shooting in the USA is talked about as 'prohibitive'.
I've just bought -
- ONE can of RL22 - $62
- 100 Sierra 7mm FMJs - $60
We pay more than twice as much for our 'cooking' .22 as you do and that's for stuff that's MADE here.
The new Ruger PR is something that you can find for under a thousand bucks in most dealers - we pay over $2000 here.
So stump or give up.
But please, less of the grumbling, eh?
You can use 45-70 brass/dies but you need to expand bass .015", this can be accomplished by inserting a.458 expander plug inside lubed inside case down to about 3/8" from base and check fit in chamber, go deeper to expand to chamber. Then trim/shorten brass 1/16". Use as cast pure lead 45-70 bullets (405 grain) as large as possible .460"-.462" and load 22 grains of IMR SR4759 or 23 grains of AA5744 with std. Rifle primer.View attachment 332881
Antique Danish Model 1867/91 Rolling Block Rifle #61256 - Antique No FFL
Could this shoot modern ammunition or is 11.7x51r a black powder round? Does anyone even make a 11.7x51r anymore?
