Video - Colt's Lightning Rifle

Shooting USFA's version of the Colt Lightning rifle in .44-40.

This rifle is very tightly chambered, so I have to rack the slide with authority to chamber my B-P rounds with .429" bullets to get them to chamber fully. But I don't shoot this gun often enough to make it worth my while to size up some .427"s just for this rifle.

My buddy Roughshod has an original Lightning in .44-40 that won't chamber a round with a bullet bigger than .427", so I'm lucky this one will chamber them...usually.
