The 577 Snider was a British black powder cartridge, which fired a .577" 480 grain lead projectile, which was primarily used in the Snider-Enfield rifle. Early 577 Snider cartridges were made from paper, with a metallic base and primer, but later commercial cartridges were made from drawn brass. The 577 Snider cartridge was eventually replaced in service by the 577-450 Martini-Henry cartridge in the 1870s. The 577 Snider cartridge is considered obsolete, with commercial production having ceased in the 1930s. The case appears to be straight, but has a slight taper and shoulder to it. The 577 Snider has ample power for hunting but only at close range.
