Re: Pistol Caliber Rifles

I have an 1894c in. 357 and a Rossi 92 in .45 Colt. They both pick up about 400-500 fps over the 4.5-5.5" Blackhawk they pair with depending on the load.

That is a significant jump in power and a properly loaded .45 Colt levergun can outshine a .30-30 rather easily. A properly loaded .357 levergun is touching the bottom-middle range of .30-30 power.

They are still quite practical and effective.
