Dumb Question:

 

Why not just shoot 44 Russian in them? Starline makes 44 Russian brass, I shoot it in original S&W Top Breaks all the time.

Well, we reload and shoot .44 Specials in all of our outfit's revolvers and rifles.

That's 30+ Cowboy Guns shooting the SAME caliber. I'm not wanting to mix in anything different.

Sounds like your crew has about 46.23% of the 44SP guns used in SASS competition.

I have 14 Cowboy guns all in 44 special

Because I like the caliber.

 

No Question is a dumb question.

The Only True Dumb Question is the one you did not Ask !

I don't know, have no dog in the fight and don't own either Schofields or 44 specials BUT, would there be any concerns over strength of the Schofields cylinder with 44 Specials?

I must have another 4% I've got 2 Sheriffs models, that accounts for .5 since the barrels are so short. I also have a 12" Buntline that accountes for 3.5 since the barrel is so long.

 

 

That being said, a few years ago, I saw an original Russian in an antique store for $300 that was in excellent condition. I didn't buy it cuz I didn't wanna tool up for a new caliber and it could not safely be converted to .44 Special.

 

I have regretted that decision ever since.
