What is the chamber length and bore diameter of your 10? How much does your 10 weigh? Generally 10 bores regulate with 5 to 8 drams black powder, could go a bit higher, and there are equivalent nitro loads. Can you share some photos of your double?

The gun is a Greener 10 ga rifled bore sxs,hammerless h/brk with 28 inch bbls,box-lock with 2 leaf express sights.I have not cheched the actuall bore dia yet,Ithink the chamber is about 2 1/4 inches as a 2 1/2 inch brass 10ga shell doesn't fit all the way in. the gun weight is approx 9 lbs.

The gun is fully rifled? The weight would suggest a round ball 5 or 6 dram load. What are the proof marks?

Both barells are rifled fully,there are very few proff marks but I can see Birmingham black powder proofs , each barell is stamped with a "R" thre is also the number 11 and some unreadable mark over a 12M,there is also the letter "T" beside the proof marks on the right barell,and they are marked WW Greener

My guess is round ball at groove diameter or a couple of thousandths over 2 5/8 case, 5 dram load. 8 dram conical 10 bore rifles weigh in at about 13lbs and Greener was not known for under building his guns. My first thought was a ball and shotgun as the weight is right but it is fully rifled.

I bought this gun a couple of weeks ago at auction , I thought It was a ball & shot gun, but it has full rifling,damascus barells and is,I think, pre 1900.I have sent an info request to Greener in England but I have not heard back yet. the gun is in such nice shape that once I have it gone over by my favorite smith I want to go out and shoot it. The serial # is 1402 but I have not been able to pin down a date of manufacture yet.It didn't come with any case or accessories , so I'm kind of fumbling in the dark with this.

To me it looks normal but I don't know what it should be, but a guess would be 1/16 inch deep,and nice crisp edges on the lands. I checked my pm and yours didn't make it through.
