Looking for a copy [pdf or print] of a British Manual

Perchance does anyone have a .pdf copy of this manual they might care to share, or a printed copy I can either buy or borrow to scan?

I understand that it has information on some early British cartridges, such as the .577, .577-.450, and Snider, but I have found no specific information thus far.


Not want you want as it’s to do with WW1, however if you can go back down the rabbit hole you may find info you are looking for. I don’t have the exact reference, sorry.

official history of the Munitions UK volume XI part VI.

That is not much later so what I am seeking may still be relevant there, and as they say, beggars can not be choosers, so I will bite, and thanks.

archive.org has the sixth edition from 1862

A quick glance here and all I can say is WOW!!! What a great resource. Thank you so much.

Here’s the 1860 version


Mulligan, and JPeelen, much appreciated!
