Gallery Rifle definition

Has anyone got a copy of the Bisley Bible handy? I need the complete definition of a "Gallery Rifle".

I noticed on the range regulations that the old prohibition on downloaded rifle ammunition on the pistol ranges appears to have disappeared, and I need to check that it has not moved into the Gallery Rifle definition or somewhere else. Plus, I need to see if my Australian International Arms with downloaded ammunition now fits the definition.
Right, thanks for that.

Downloads are prohibited.

However, going by the letter of the rules, so is .44-40 (amongst others):

A2.1.2 The term “pistol calibre” refers to cartridge firearms and not to muzzle-loaded or
front-loaded firearms. Permitted cartridges are those which were originally designed for use
in pistols
and are restricted to calibres in which Gallery Rifles and/or Pistols are commercially
available. [180

.44-40 was, of course, originally designed for use in lever action rifles.
