Hi Ghostrider

If you go to Nitro Express forum, in the section on Classic Single Shot rifles you will find a thread on “Interesting Rook Rifle, Mini Snider in .360 No.5”

There is some useful loading info there. I know that your rifle is marked as a .380, but the outside lubricated .380 Long with heeled bullet and the slightly later inside lubricated .360 No. 5 seem to have been regarded as interchangeable.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for this link.
I am now in search of some long colt brass. I know I can also use shortened 38 Special brass but would like to find 50 38 Long Colt.

Ghostrider,
I think Starline makes it ( for SASS shooters). Several dealers carry Starline, you might try Buffalo Arms.

I have a mold for this bullet and may even have some bullets already cast.
Did you order the bullets already?

Use a hollow base wad cutter bullet. The shirt will expand into the rifling for a tight fit.

Would it be possible for you to use the .380 Lungo or as it is known in English, .380 Rook? If that would work for you I have 7 boxes that I will be selling.

I purchased several boxes from Larry and shot the rifle this week after having it put back on face. The 380 Lungo functioned perfectly. Loved shooting the rifle. It is like shooting an oversized 22.
