577 Snider

Was there ever a special light bullet high velocity dangerous game load made for the 577 Snider by a major manufacturer or more specifically Kynoch?
Every factory load seems to have been very close to the British military spec IMHO.

Not that I’ve ever seen an example or reference about. Not that I’ve seen everything.
I’ve not seen a Match or anything but Ball, Shot, Blank & Dummy / Drill

Are you talking about a jacketed or lead bullet?

As far as loads being close to Mil-Spec I’d think because of the firearms sights it would be necessary.

It seems to me the .577 would be a poor choice for an express load since the service bullet isn’t really heavy in relation to its diameter and reducing weight below that would probably produce a load that would have poor penetration on large game. Jack
