Don't even think about it. You have no idea what someone may have loaded it with. The best way is put the ramrod down in it and mark it and then lay it on top of barrel to see how deep it went. An empty barrel wont have but an inch or so of ramrod sticking out. That rifle is what CVA called a Kentucky. It's a .45 caliber and was most likely put together from a kit. The stock came in two pieces so it would fit in a box.

That looks like a fun rifle! Let us know how it progresses. I wouldn't use that ramrod, too pretty; get one of those plastic rods that won't be seen.

One of my favorite "toys" right now is similar, only in a pistol version, 50 caliber with 8.5" barrel.

Drop the ram rod down the barrel, if it bounces the rifle is not loaded, if the ram rod stops with a dull thud the rifle is loaded.

If you intend to shoot that rifle, please buy a copy of the Lyman Black Powder Handbook and read it well before you ever attempt to fire it.

Have the rifle checked by a knowledgeable person first.

Do you regularly shoot at a range? If so do you see any folks there shooting BP rifles? If so engage them in conversation during cease fires and ask for help, most BP shooters will gladly help a newbie.

If you do not shoot at a range frequented by BP shooters, go find one and find someone there who can/will offer you some guidance.
