M1866 chamber dimensions

Posted by Stephen B. McCartney on Tuesday, 1 July 2014, at 12:11 a.m.

I have a'66 which will not chamber any of my reloads. I bought another barrel, one in better condition inside and out. Same problem. The same ammunition will chamber in my 1868,1870 and Ward-Burton, as well as my replica Sharps carbine. Any ideas why this is so? Were the '66 chamber dimensions slightly different, or the ammunition specs different? Thanks, ahead, for any suggestions!
