Conversion cylinders will handle low power loads like cowboy loads. I don't think they advise the use of full power jacketed bullets in them. They will however withstand full power bp loads. I've never handled a Lemat but they should be able to withstand low power loads should you have one converted by a competent gunsmith. However they're about the most expensive revolver repro you can get. Add to it the price of having it converted and you are gonna have one expensive toy. Cabela's has theirs on sale for 749.99, down from 849.99. A Kirst conversion cylinder for a 58 Remington is around 275.00 so you can probably add that plus whatever the going rate for custom smith work is to the price of the Lemat. I'd say probably around 2,000 total.
