Looking for a few .50 Alaskan / .50-.348

I picked up a Norwegian Rolling Block that is stamped .50-.348 on top of the barrel. Google tells me that it's the same as .50 Alaskan, made from a blown out .348 Win. case. I measured the chamber length, and it's 2.25'' long. That's a lot longer than the original 12.7x44R round was. Before spending on a box of shells, I'm hoping to find a couple pieces of brass to verify that's what I'm dealing with. Let me know what you'll need for them.

The .50 Alaskan case is 2.10", same as .45-70. I have one made on a 1886 Winchester. Excellent cartridge. Odd to see your chamber at 2.25". I make my cases from .348 Win brass and they come out 2.1".
