I got a chance to try out my Martini and Snider on Fri. I posted some info on the Martini forum about the outing. The Snider!!!! I really wanted this rifle to be a shooter. And while it did shoot ok there was a problem. Every case bulged and did not extract without using a screw drive and some force. At first I thought that I may have done some thing wrong in loading the cartridges. Here is what I used. 60 gn of FFFg (by vol.) topped with abot 20 gn corn meal, card wad, grease cookie, card wad, .600 rnd ball (hand inserted) and grease covering the top to keep it in. Then I remembered reading about the Nepalese Snider having bulged barrels and nonconcentric chambers. I started checking the champer and I found that it was grossly oversize. Back near the shoe it checked .685 in one direction and .690 at 90 degrees to that. Since the cases (CBC) check .658 at the rim, that give about .030 oversized. Of the 4 shots showing on the target, 3 cases were from straighten MH cases so they had been annealed. One shot I used a case that had not been annealed just trimmed to length and it did not bulge as much as the softer cases. so I thing that I can rule out excessive pressure (for the time being anyway). I have not come to terms yet with the Snider being just a wall hanger. Looking for some input on what to do. One thing that I did come up with is 20 gauge cases measure .681 at the rim. What do you think?
