|22nd March 2005||Inert-Firing a Martini Henry|
By George Hulmes
After speaking with Graham Cole about acquiring an inert Boxer-Henry cartridge to test the action on my Martini Henry, I've finally been able to do so.

A loaded or inert but loaded 577-45 will not eject in the same way as a fired case. They are too long and heavy. Still, have fun with what your government allows you to have and I am sure I don’t have to tell you to remember to treat all firearms as loaded.

Sure thing Barry, thanks for the advice.
