.577 Snider (14.7mm) Reloading Data

 
Warning! Notes: Historical Notes: This British cartridge was adopted in 1867. It was used in the Snider breech-loading conversion of the Enfield Musket. The converted rifle was usually referred to as the "Snider Enfield". General Comments: The dimensions of the 577 case are very similar to those of the 24-gauge shotgun shell. Brass 24-gauge shells can be used to make ammunition for 577 Snider rifles by trimming about 1/2-inch from the length. Neither the Snider rifle nor the 577 cartridge are very practical for American hunting, but these guns are a lot of fun to shoot. The big bullet has ample power for hunting, but the curved trajectory makes it a short-range proposition. (Cartridges of the World 12th Edition)
