We really need far more information about your Ballard rifle to help you with identification. The 24 inch barrel would tend to indicate it would be either a Number 2 Sporting rifle or a Number 3 Gallery rifle. It would help if you could post a picture of your Ballard. It would also help if you could get a set of calipers and measure the bore diameter and post that size to identify the caliber.
Looking forward to your reply.........
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!
