If the marks are from the rifling the bullet nose may be too big, you did not say what ammunition you have someones local loads or purchased cowboy ammo. First take a round and push the bullet nose into the muzzle it should slide in easily almost to the case itself.If not that is the trouble. You did not say that an empty case will chamber or not. Since the bore is usually .450 the nose should mike no larger than .459. And as Thomas said you could also have piece of a broken case in the chamber, this is more common than you would think and perhaps why the last owner sold it.Let us know what you find.
