Vetterli .41 rimfire

Any help finding a .41 caliber rimfire cartridge (current production/easily available)? Or a very close match? The original round was a 10.6mm x 38mm (I think)

I recently acquired a 1869/71 Vetterli Swiss army rifle in .41 rimfire, but apparently the ammo is hard to find. And OLD and unreliable. There is lots of info on the Vetterli forum about converting to centre-fire, but even after that you need to modify .348 brass and hand load a custom bullet. I could do the conversion, or at worst, have a gunsmith do it, but I'd rather avoid the hand-loading learning curve (and the equipment acquisition)

I also have .32 R Flobert rifle. It will probably go the centre-fire conversion route, as then it will fire .32 Shorts, which I think are more easily available.

I'd start here:

just to see what they can do for you.

Then ask Bob Hayley (940) 888-3352.

You might want to check Dixie Gun Works, too.
