Hello everyone,

I am new to the forum and found it only through searching for some obscure ammunition.
My father's 73rd birthday is coming up in May and as a gift I have been restoring an old 1890's Remington Rolling Block 32, single shot rifle he used as a kid.
The last time he fired it was about 60 years ago due to a broken firing pin.
He has often mentioned his memories of this old timer and I thought that a wonderful gift would be to enable him to fire this gun again before his time is done.
I reconditioned it, found the firing pin and installed it and had the barrel reworked by a smith. It is a "honey" again and it is ready to go. Only problem is that I can not locate even one box of this ammunition.

If there is anyone out there that has a stock of this ammo (most recently imported by Navy Arms)(made in Brazil) it would be great to talk about working out a deal of somekind. I will buy 20 rounds or 1000 rounds. Anything to get him the opportunity to shoot again.

Here's Hoping!!!
