    I've got this old sporterized Swiss Vetterli in .41 rimfire. It's in shoot able condition and want to fire this baby. The only problem is the ammo is very expensive. I've read about conversions of these guns to centerfire and the reformation of other brass to fit the rifle. Has anybody done this or heard of it? Does anybody have any suggestions? Any advice at all would be very helpful. Thank you.

    go to NRV Outdoors- blog writen by a friend that is a Prof. of Veterinary Medicine at Va Tech. On the LEFT side of his home page, scroll way down until you come to "A Walflower No More".

    The conversion to center fire is rather easy. I believe Lee has made dies for the 41 Swiss.

    Good to know, do you happen to know what parent cases it uses?

    I believe it's 348 Win cases.
