So . . . clear something up for me . . . I understand what you're saying about cartridge length and feeding on these CF and why the shorter cartridge might/could be a problem.

In talking lever guns . . . . what is different in the larger caliber guns as opposed to a .22 rimfire lever gun that allows the .22 (I'll use a Henry as a example) to feed the different length cartridges . .. i.e. .22 short, long and long rifle?

I can easily understand what Hawg is talking about in regards to the shorter cartridge feeding too high and catching the slug on the chamber . . . but why doesn't that happen or what is different in the .22 rim fires that allows the different length cartridges to feed without a problem?

If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
