I picked a 1873 Beaumont Vitali at an auction today in great condition. What would be a good price? I am trying to figure out how I did. You just don't see them around much.Also, any idea where to get the ammo?

Looks like you can get ammo here:

I'd guess that if you want to shoot it much, you'll need to load it yourself.

Whatever you paid must've been a good price or you wouldn't have bought it.

Nobody can appraise a firearm that they can't even see. You don't offer any photos.....? You don't offer a condition.
Why are you trying to figure out how you did? It's after the fact, over with, done deal. It's yours. You did fine.

Or... you got suckered like a fool on Hollywood Blvd on a friday night. They saw you coming and brought out the biggest piece o'junk they could find. And you bought it. Ha ha ha!!

Take your pick

Ammo for a Beaumont? ROTFLMAO.
You'll have to make your own. Luckily many have .457" bores so .45-70 cast bullets work out pretty good.
I believe cases are made from the ever useful .348 Winchester.

Interesting rifle. Comes up to the shoulder real nice, very comfortable. I have one.
