    I always wanted a Martini Henry.. and I've recently come across a really nice carbine that I'd love to own. I've read Garry James article on the rifle, and realize he's a real enthusiast of the cartridge. However, I'd like to hear from the guys who shoot and reload. Sources for brass, load data and what not.

    I have a .22 that was made in the 60's that is a scaled down M-H. Love that rifle!

    Does anyone own a Peabody?

    Love those Martinis!

    I've been bitten by the Martini bug, and am scouting around now for one. I like the small bores, so I'm favoring the BSA target rifles. It took awhile to find sources, but it was worth it. I've never seen one in the local gunshows.

    Big dog, Try John Appleton's web site. He imports BSA Martini target rifles. I currently have a 1215 imported by him. Nice rifle for the off-hand 200 yard matches I participate in.

    Re: Martini-Henry

    Which caliber, vodkazombie?? The .577-400?? Or something else?? Tried Buffalo Arms?? They have a lot of obsolete brass they make. Or Old Western Scrounger (pricier than BA).
