The wall is thicker in the back where the bolt notches are. Always wondered how much metal is left where the notches are cut in.
Original Colt chambers were tapered. Modern ones are not. Not sure about original Remingtons. The battery is dead in my calipers so can't tell how thick they are. .44 Colt chambers are thinner at the notches than .36's because the rear of the .44 cylinder is the same size as the .36 cylinder. There have been plenty of original Colt .44's rust through at the notch.
