One suggestion, before you load a semi wad cutter make a dummy round or two. I have two lever action guns that shooting 44 special I have gotten two rounds out of the tube stuck above the lifting gate.
You need tools to take the gun apart to clear. Using a jacketed or lead rounded tip bullet doesn’t seem to have a problem.
I use standard load for the 44 special. Also if you use lead make sure it’s hard to keep the leading down.
I shoot hard lead bullets at over 1500 in 44 mag and don’t have any problems and they are very accurate.
It was a sad day when I discovered my universal remote control did not in fact control the universe.
Did you hear about the latest study.....5 out of 6 liberals say that Russian Roulette is safe.
