Interesting Raimey. Thank you.

I also cast the smoothbore. Measurements indicated 24ga, not 20 as I had thought. 60mm long chamber. Bore is 0.594" or 15mm. Case is 0.660" as the base and rim cut for chamber is 0.722".

Pics below of my casts. I'm not good at that and I need to buy better calipers. First is shotgun. Next 3 are rifle.

24 Bore would be a neat chambering for a Biks. Cartridges aren't that difficult to come by.

Hi

As I'd noted elsewhere, at the shot barrel, Snider brass would work, although a bit short. Magtech 24ga brass could work too if you can get it.

Graf's has the magtech brass

50 Alaskan brass might work for the rifle barrel, so 348 Winchester could be used as a parent case.

Furthermore, if you find that this gun would end up being more trouble to load for than you would be comfortable with, I'd like a chance to buy it from you.
Consider me if you want to pass it on

Great post. I'd line up too in order to have a shot @ it.

I recently bought ammo for my 24ga / 5.6x35R SXS combo, from Midway. It was before the current run on ammo, but I would guess they still have some.
