Ha! There are some moments when I like being wrong.

This is one of them.

Do you know what kind of recoil we facing here?

Just waiting for a response from cobra firearms about the twist rate of the Big Bore Derringer.

I did a fast twist expiriement with the 22 Hornet ( which won't normally stabilize anything much over 50 grains )

I have a Taurus Raging Hornet that I grafted a Dan Wesson barrel shroud to fit, & made a custom 1 in 9" twist barrel ( normal is 1 in 14" or sometimes 1 in 12" ) I now shoot 68 grain bullets out of my 6" revolver... in fact it worked so well I bought a Ruger 77/ 22 Hornet & swapped a 1 in 9" twist barrel & now am working through loads with faster powders ( to work more efficiently in the 6" barrel ) that still shoot well in the rifle... 55 grain & 68 grain bullets shoot very well... volume even in the revolver is almost quiet enough to not need ear protection the rifle is very quiet

I working on groups out to 200 yards right now with both guns...

sometimes this stuff works... some times it doesn't but as long as you have the imagination & the friends, & the means... it sure is fun

Problem is, the OP has an imagination but his means amount to thinking somebody just OUGHT to do the hard work for him. I see a lot of that type project on the www.

If you don't like what the OP is proposing then move on to the next thread. No one is forcing you to read these threads and forcing you to partake in his experiments.

Some people b**** and moan more than my old lady!

Now that that is off my chest, good shooting to everyone!

Hey, it's all just cheap entertainment, less predictable than professional wrasslin.

Yup, you are right. That's why I chuckle and move on. Same thing I do when flippin' through the channels and I land on professional wrasslin'!
