Product Description

Original high-quality brass cases manufactured at the Eley-Kynoch factory in Birmingham

The¬†.577 Snider¬†cartridge¬†was a¬†British¬†black powder¬†metallic cartridge, which fired a 14.7-millimeter (0.577¬†in), 31-gram (480¬†gr) lead projectile, primarily used in the¬†Snider‚ÄďEnfield¬†rifle.

Early .577 Snider cartridges were made from a composite design using paper and brass foil with a stamped metallic base and primer, much like the first generation of¬†Martini-Henry¬†cartridges. Later cartridges (after the design had been proved with the Martini-Henry cartridges) were made from drawn brass, much like modern¬†small arms¬†ammunition. The .577 Snider cartridge was eventually replaced in service by the¬†.577/450 Martini‚ÄďHenry¬†cartridge in the 1870s. The .577 Snider cartridge is considered by most commentators to be¬†obsolete, with large-scale commercial production having ceased in the 1930s.
