Those guns were made for a cartridge called the .44XL. It was really the .44-40 loaded with a shot capsule (No. 8 was the most common). It was intended for use on small game and some consider it the predecessor of the .410. Even though the bore is unrifled, .44-40 cartridges could be fired for larger game.
