    I'm thinking that a chamber casting may help but it will have to be after the holidays.

    Chamber cast will show you how rough the chamber is. Can you post pictures of this bulged brass.

    Bulging of brass particularly around the head is not unusual and not always unsafe. It can be something as simple as a cartridge made to minimum standard and and a chamber near maximum standards.

    You seem to indicate that the rifle has excessive headspace. It won't be safe to shoot at all, even with reduced load, and even with cast bullets, unless it is fixed.

    I would take the rifle to a Gunsmith and have him set the barrel back one turn and rechamber-headspace. Then enjoy your rifle.

    Hello to everybody,
    I resume this thread because I am evaluating a similar rifle at a local gunsmith here in Italyicon. In recent years there are updates on how the gun fired, and on its authenticity?
    thanks a lot

    Even though in the configuration of an Artillery Carbine, it is not a military weapon and appears to have been assembled from odd parts including the rear sight from a rifle. The loading lever also looks a bit strange. As a collector's piece, for a serious collector, no go!

    I totally agree with you. It will remain in the gunsmith rack.
