Remington Rolling Block
I have a Remington rolling block that a guy gave me about 8 years ago. It has a round barrel, full stock, cheek piece, checkering, and the original ram rod. I did a chambers cast when I got the rifle and I’m not exactly sure what it is. It’s a bottle neck, there is a name engraved on the barrel which looks to be Scandinavian.

When my son and I were messing around in my shop today he was asking about a certain rifle he remembered from a few years ago. After a few more questions I realized he was talking about this particular rifle. I pulled it out of the gun safe and we talked about it awhile so now I have the urge to play with it. I’ve never shot this rifle and I am no Rolling block guru so I figured I would ask about it on here. I’ll post a Few pics of it and maybe I can get some help identifying the calibre. When I first did my chamber cast I thought maybe it was a 10.15x61 Jarmann but I honestly don’t know.

RE: Remington Rolling Block
Stupid question, but have you dropped one of your 44-77 cases in that chamber?

RE: Remington Rolling Block
Almost wondering if it's not a 43 spanish or 43 egyptian.

RE: Remington Rolling Block
No I haven’t Don that’s a great idea. I was thinking about the 43 Span and Egyptian too.

RE: Remington Rolling Block
If the 44 rim is too small for the chamber recess, it's likely a 43 egyptian. 50-90 cases cut down will work, if you can get them neck sized and fire formed somehow. Far as that goes, I've got a set of Egyptian dies I could send you up the size die to get some case's made. Might even have some RMC cases that haven't been fired.

Thanks Don. I’ll do some messing around with it in the morning. The bore is in really good condition and all the serial numbers are the same.
