Swedish m/1845-ish musket? (Muzzleloading)

Ok, just knowing the cone profile is enough to do a sketch.

Going back to the mystery musket, I had the m/1815 musket out to compare side by side. The brass bands are actually the same thickness, it’s just that they are longer on the 1815 so feel heavier. The muzzle band has been made in the same way so I believe it is an original part. The trigger guards are not the same profile, the loop is more rounded and the tang is slightly shorter on the mystery musket. The butt plate is also incompatible. The top tang of the 1815 is much longer and complicated.

I think that all I need to do to restore it is find a donor lock.

Does Alm’s book have information on the load for the 1851 Kammerlader?
