44 Henry

The bullet that the Henry used was what is called the "44 Flat".It was one of the very first if not the first attempt to make a big bore rimfire round.Remember the 22 short had only came out a few years eailer.So the idea was to double the diameter and enlarge the case for more powder and see what happened.It was not a very powerful round from what I have read being somewhere close to a modern day 38 spl round.Hope this helps.
